The Aviemore Centre Ice Rink was an indoor ice rink situated in Aviemore, Scotland.[1] It was originally an outdoor facility that had featured the largest British ice surface since the late 1930s. Warmer temperatures required the rink to be closed in the 1960s.

The first ice hockey match to be staged at the rink was a friendly between the Murrayfield Racers and the Highland All-Stars on April 12, 1969. Murrayfield won 13-4.

The arena's most notable tenant was the Aviemore Blackhawks, who were active from 1976 to 1990. The club won the Scottish section of the British Hockey League Division Two in 1985 and 1987.

The Aviemore Ice Rink was demolished in the spring of 1998 and a car park has since been erected in its former location.
