Description

British sled dog owners are frothing at the mouth, sent crazy in anticipation over the Aviemore Sledog Rally. There's more than 200 teams of Siberian Huskies, Malamutes, Greenlands and cross-breeds at the event. They race like only packs of dogs can through Glenmore Forest Park on the shores of Loch Morlich. Whether you prefer admiring the muscular mushers (sled drivers) or petting the grizzly dogs, the event is a great day out. Even if there's no snow, the dogs will pull wheeled sleds wearing special boots to protect their paws. After the rally, there's chance to visit Highland Wildlife Park, partake in whisky-tasting sessions and shop at the Musher's Market.
