Planning the perfect day in the Cairngorms

Lou Reed famously sang about his perfect day being drinking Sangria, going to the zoo and then the movies. But have you thought about what yours looks like in the National Park?

The old adage goes ‘fail to plan, plan to fail’ and this wisdom also applies to creating the ‘perfect day’ on holiday. 

While it’s often tempting to kickback, relax and go with the flow entirely, a little bit of planning will definitely pay off. This is particularly true in Covid times, when it’s important that you keep on top of the guidelines, as well as what services and attractions are open (check out for details of what’s open and to what extent).

The first thing that will help you most ensure you have the perfect day is to clarify what, exactly, this looks like for you. When you put your feet up at the end of the day, how do you want to feel? What will signify to you that you’ve had the perfect day? For example, do you want to feel like you’ve achieved something, or pushed yourself out of your normal comfort zone by the end of the day? 

See our infographic below for suggestions of what will make your perfect day, based on how you want to feel at the end of it.
