Exploring the Cairngorms National Park
In 2011, National Geographic Traveller magazine voted the Cairngorms National Park one of its top 20 places to visit in the world. With its bewitching snow-capped peaks and blissful glens, it’s not hard to see why.

The Cairngorms received national park status in 2003. With an area of 3800 sq km, it is Britain’s largest national park and is home to a fascinating diversity of plants and wildlife. Visitors have been known to sight deer, otters, wildcats and even red squirrels.
The park is covered in hiking and mountain bike trails, so walkers and cyclists will be able to navigate this spectacular landscape with ease. But it’s important to be responsible: don’t veer too far off the beaten track and stick to exploring in daylight hours.
Activities like white-water rafting, canyoning, horse racing, clay pigeon shooting, bird watching and fishing are widely available too. Call The Lovat on 01456 490000 for more information on trips to the Cairngorms.
