From the ski slopes of Aviemore to rolling valleys and glens, via whisky distilleries and cosy hunting lodges, the Cairngorms are part of the UK’s largest national park and a region of epic landscapes and staggering beauty. This is a wild terrain of granite peaks soaring up from placid lochs and turreted castles nestled in verdant glens against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains.
Search out wild reindeer and canoe across lochs, fish for salmon and trout in frigid, pristine waters and mountain bike through valleys and glens before retiring to a cosy lodge for a small tipple in front of a roaring fire.
