The Cairngorms National Park is an
area of outstanding natural beauty.
The area's attractions come ‘big’ – the
Cairngorm Mountains contain some
of Scotland's highest peaks – and
they come ‘old’ - the ancient pine
forests of Abernethy, Rothiemurchus
and Glen Tanar are home to the tiny
Crested Tit, one of our rarest native
birds.The attractions also come ‘fast’
- think about downhill alpine skiing,
snowboarding or mountain biking
- and they come ‘slow’ - turn your
mind to gliding, golfing, salmon fishing,
pony trekking and nostalgic steam
train trips.This is an area of stunning
scenery where you should take your
time to explore - preferably by bike
through green forest paths and cycle
trails, or on foot on some of the best
high and low level walking in the
UK, including the SpeysideWay.The
area is no stranger to the TV having
starred in the BBC Springwatch and
Autumnwatch programmes and the
popular BBCTV series, Monarch of
the Glen, was filmed on location here.
