Attraction Information

Cairngorms National Park is huge and full of things to do and see! It contains Britain's most massive and highest mountain range and some of the best ancient forests. It also has rivers and lochs, moorlands, fields and villages to explore.
With so many different landscapes, there is also plenty of wildlife to spot such as wildcats, eagles and ospreys, red squirrels and reindeer. The Park is home to 25 per cent of Britain's threatened species.
There are hundreds of miles of trails and paths plus nine visitor centres and other sites along the way. You can also take part in a number of activities on land, mountain or water such as High Ropes, archery and horse riding.
The Park is covered by nine Ranger services, many of whom run free or subsidised events during the year, plus they are on hand to answer any questions about the vast amount of wildlife there is to enjoy.
Check online for free leaflets about the many different walks in the area and what to look out for on your way.
