Cairngorms National Park

This remote and rural region of the Scottish Highlands is the UK’s largest national park and touted by National Geographic Magazine as one of the top 20 places in the world to visit. Cairngorms National Park boasts a truly remarkable landscape of towering mountains, river valleys, tree-lined lakes and secluded mountain villages. Winter snow sports soon give way to mile upon mile of hiking and biking trails, the best ways to truly explore this unique environment. History buffs can visit the sites of vicious Jacobite battles and the grand castles that still dot the landscape today. Join a ranger guided walk to look for the intriguing wildlife of the region or relax in a luxurious spa hotel on your break to Cairngorms National Park.
