It’s an excellent self-catering holiday location for visitors who enjoy stunning natural beauty, unique wildlife, and adventurous hill-walking territory.
The rugged mountainous terrain supports a wide variety of rare alpine vegetation and high-altitude birds, such as the snow bunting. The beautiful open glens and ancient Scots pine forests below the high altitudes offer a haven for other rare birds and animals like the capercailllie, osprey, crossbill, wild cat and pine martin. A National Park for all seasons; the same path you hurtle down on a mountain bike during summer can turn into a beautiful autumnal walk carpeted in golden leaves or even a slope to ski down during the winter months.
Perfect for skiing, mountain-biking or hiking holidays, the fresh water lochs and world-famous River Spey running through the Cairngorms also attracts the keen fisherman for fat salmon, and trout fishing too.
