Brewing giant reveals plans for Lost Forest by Aviemore

This looks to be a very ambitious proposal for the Kinrara estate, neat Aviemore.

Beer giant BrewDog has revealed bold plans for its Lost Forest by Aviemore, which will include the planting of millions of native trees and the creation of a hotel, campsite and distillery.
