Active Cairngorms: Health Walks

With over 30 health walk groups in and around the Cairngorms National Park, it’s never been easier to start being active outdoors

It’s a (Wee) Walk in the Park!

If you find it difficult to get active, why not start walking? It’s easy to get started, you don’t need special equipment – and best of all it can improve your health and happiness.

Health Walks are short, safe, social, local, low level, with a trained leader to show you the way.  If you join one of our groups, it will give you the chance to explore the outdoors, get to know your local area and meet new people.

You don’t need to book a health walk – just turn up at the starting point.


Active Cairngorms Health Walks are supported by the Cairngorms National Park Authority, Paths for All and NHS HIghland.
