Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend, 11-13 May

Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend

The Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend is a celebration of the fantastic natural heritage of the Cairngorms National Park that takes place every year in May.

The sun has set on the fifth Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend, and so we wanted to extend a massive thank you to everyone who attended and all the Rangers and organisers involved in making it happen.

The chairs are stacked, the marquees packed away and flags taken down, but the nature continues to thrive.  We hope you have been inspired to investigate and enjoy the fantastic natural wonders of the Cairngorms National Park for yourself and that you learnt something new about the natural heritage all around us.

Until next year, thank you for being part of the BIG Weekend.


We hope you enjoyed the BIG Weekend this year!

If you took part in any of the 60+ events that were happening, we would love to hear what you thought and what kind of experience you had.

As a thank you for taking part in our evaluation survey, there is the chance to be entered into a prize draw to win a family pass to Landmark Forest Adventure Park.

As we approach the summer, this is the ideal prize for a great day out enjoying nature in the Cairngorms National Park.

Please take the time to let us know about your experiences of the BIG Weekend.  The survey is anonymous unless you choose to leave your details which will enter you into the prize draw.

Until next year, thank you for being part of the BIG Weekend.
