Aviemore & The Cairngorms

The region with some of Scotland’s highest mountain ranges and offering outdoor enthusiasts some of the wildest and most beautiful landscapes in the UK.

"Aviemore & The Cairngorms" are situated in Scotland's heart.

Although nature rules supreme in this region, there is also the occasional castle or small museum and sometimes a grim reminder of earlier and wilder days. This region is actually on the edge of The Cairngorms National Park, but the very spirit of the park pervades the whole region.

Especially walkers (here I go again...) will absolutely love it! Look at the: East Highland Way, Speyside Way, Dava Way, Cateran Trail, Scottish National Trail
