There is so much to do in the Cairngorms we couldn’t possibly list it all here, but here are just a few suggestions to start planning your trip.

Think about the main reason you want to visit the Cairngorms. For many people, it’s for the stunning scenery and great outdoor playground.

If this is you, consider how you want to spend your time here to make the most of it; planning hikes, bike rides and trips to attractions in advance, is part of the joy of a break! There are options to suit all ages and stages here, whatever you want to do.

Others come for the unique history (such as our distilleries), wildlife or stargazing that is found here – again, planning in advance really pays off in creating the perfect holiday! Some attractions will need to be booked in advance and you’ll find a wealth of information on this site about how to contact providers and what they can offer.

Happy planning!
