- 1. Highlife Highland
If you're under 18, and have a valid Young Scot card, you get 20% off a concessionary rate at Highlife Highland leisure facilities! What better excuse to get involved and join the gym, or go for a swim?
- 2. Walking
Walking is a great form of exercise that you can do everyday! Simple things like taking the stairs instead of the lift can really add up.
Scotland has plenty of beautiful scenery, and lots of it is in the Highlands! With plenty of walking routes, you're sure to find a route near you that lets you enjoy beautiful views! Go along with friends or family, as it gives you a chance to have a bit of a chat while you walk, and being in the outdoors can be great for your mental health too. Win-win!
- 3. Outdoor Discovery
Based in the grounds of the Hilton Coylumbridge Hotel, Aviemore, Outdoor Discovery offers lots of activities for all ages and abilities. Here you can hire a mountain bike, try out the climbing walls, or have a game of laser quest - to name a few of the many activities on offer! These activities would be great fun to do on your own or with a group of friends or family.

- 5. Parkrun
Park Run is a free weekly 5k event, and as your time is recorded each week it allows you the chance to monitor your own progress and compete against your own best time!

If you'd like to get involved in your local community, there are also plenty of opportunities to volunteer at Park Run events.
