Cairngorms National Park
The Cairngorms National Park is home to the spectacular Cairngorm mountain range, where five of the highest mountains in the UK are found. Dominated by largely natural vegetation, this vast expanse of wilderness is a haven for wildlife and outdoor lovers alike.
Along with crystal clear rivers and dark dense woodland, the glens and high mountain passes of the Park are also home to a host of fascinating museums on the history and lives of the people of the Highlands. And the castles, battlefields and barracks tell the darker story of the region’s past.
Each of the four itineraries in this leaflet has something different to offer, from exploring the area’s royal connections to rambling alongside the fast-flowing River Spey (and perhaps enjoying a dram of Speyside malt whisky to round off your day!).
So whether you’re a rugged explorer, history buff or wildlife lover, download this leaflet and experience a memorable day out in the Cairngorms National Park.
