Outdoor activities in the Cairngorms National Park

The Cairngorms National Park including the Aviemore, Angus Glens, Royal Deeside, Glenlivet, Atholl and Glenshee areas is famous for its challenging landscape and even more challenging outdoor activities. But most people who visit are so enchanted by the surroundings that walking is a must at least once during their stay.  There are over 280km of footpaths across the area that pass through almost every type of walking route imaginable from moor and woodland, riverside to loch edge and even beautiful farmland. 

Please ensure you abide by the Scottish Outdoor Access Code whilst walking in the Cairngorms National Park.
