Abernethy Nethybridge is a Christian residential adventure centre in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. Our excellent facilities include a sports centre with indoor swimming pool, sports hall and games room. Local residents and holidaymakers can enjoy use of these facilities by joining one of our sports clubs. Please note that our sports club has slightly limited opening hours as the facilities are also used regularly by our resident guests and timeshare lodge owners.
Members must come to reception to pay and exchange their membership card for a pool key before swimming.
For your safety pool rules are displayed around the pool and there are two emergency alarm buttons on the poolside.
Due to the depth of the pool no diving or jumping in is allowed.
Please remove outdoor shoes and leave them on the racks outside the changing rooms before going into the changing rooms.
Please take a shower before entering the pool. Sports Club users swim at their own risk.
There are no lifeguards on duty during unsupervised sessions so there must be at least two adults in the pool/viewing area.
