! All Aboard Santa’s Bothy !

After the success of last year’s Santa’s Bothy at the Bennachie Leisure Centre in Insch, the volunteer team are back this year with a new twist on the Bothy.

‘We have taken our inspiration this year from The Polar Express and the golden age of travel. It will be just as magical as last year with the added element of Santa being on his global travels in preparation for the big day.

This year visitors will be welcomed by Santa’s helpers and Railway personnel as they are guided around a Railway Station Platform, Santa’s train carriage, a Selfie Station, with an optional visit to the Dining Cart (our cafe).

Our thriving charity shop, Twice is Nice, will also be open on the day.

The team are already excited to be welcoming Santa back to the Bothy again this year and can’t wait to see the delight on everyone’s faces both young and old alike as they explore this most magical of Christmas experiences.

Timed slots must be pre-booked and will be available on the first three weekends in December 4th & 5th, 11th & 12th and the 18th & 19th.

Bookings can be made either over the phone by calling 01464 821248 or in person at the Bennachie Leisure Centre, Largie Road, Insch from 9am on Friday 1st October.
