Escape to a Cairngorms cottage for invigorating mountain air, breathtaking scenery and the warmest Highland hospitality.

Mother Nature has blessed the Cairngorms National Park with a plethora of treasures - arctic mountain peaks, rare pine forests, heather-clad moorlands, fast flowing rivers and deep, inky blue lochs - and it is home to many endangered species, including the wild cat and freshwater pearl mussel.

A Cairngorms cottage makes the perfect base to tour the region. Aviemore is a fantastic place for all kinds of activities including winter sports, while the village of Braemar is popular for high altitude walks and cycle routes. For a taste of tradition, watch the ancient Gaelic game of 'shinty' at Kingussie, or sample the local tipple along the Strathspey whisky trail.

Children will delight in a trip to the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre, while the Highland Wildlife Park offers animal encounter sessions with bison, wolves and Highland cattle to mention just a few. Or try the Landmark Forest Theme Park , an amazing adventure park with waterslides, wildlife trail, climbing wall, wild forest maze and more.

Other highlights not-to-be-missed include the Cairngorm Mountain Railway and the magnificent Balmoral Estate in Royal Deeside, where you can enjoy a guided walk around the gardens or a luxury Land Rover safari exploring the extensive grounds. Don't forget to visit the local town of Ballater, rather aptly adorned with 'By Royal Appointment' signs and proud of its immaculately restored Old Royal Railway Station.

Whatever your age, whatever your whim, the Cairngorms National Park offers something for everyone.
