Cairngorms National Park Location

Located in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, Cairngorms is the UK’s largest National Park encompassing Aviemore, the Angus Glens, the ‘big tree country’ of Atholl and Glenshee and the Royal Deeside and Donside area, famous for its royal connections and Balmoral Castle.

Its mosaic of varied landscape from native forest, high plateaux and moorland to wetlands and tranquil lochs are home to one in four of the UK’s endangered species, including the golden eagle, water vole and red squirrel.

This un-spoilt countryside is the place to come for almost every outdoor pursuit known to man mountain biking, canoeing, cycling, climbing, skiing, fishing, horse riding and shooting.

The Park is renown for its rich cultural heritage too. There are castles, fortified houses and vast estates to explore as well as distilleries producing Scotland’s most famous tipple. And each year the park hosts hundreds of countryside events, outdoor activities, guided walks and talks.
