Relocating to the Cairngorms?

What do you think of when you think of the Cairngorms? Do you think of vibrant communities, stunning mountains, a huge range of action packed outdoor activities and a great quality of life?

Well, you should think of all these things and more, as they are all on offer here in the Cairngorms National Park – it is hard to think of better reasons as to why people should visit the area or take the leap to relocate.

Where to Live

The Cairngorms National Park is a special place, which is home to around 18,000 people, living in a number of communities of various sizes, each with the mountains, rivers, straths and forests at their heart.

Going to School

Most village communities within the Cairngorms National Park have their own primary school which feeds into one of the nine secondary schools in and around the Park.

These include: Kingussie High School in Badenoch; Grantown Grammar School in Strathspey; Aboyne Academy in Deeside; Alford Academy in Donside; Brechin High School and Websters High School in Kirriemuir, Angus; Blairgowrie High School and Pitlochory High School in Perthshire.

The National Park is playing an ever increasing role in a variety of subjects within the curriculum at all levels of education and many of them already have an Eco-schools grading, showing their commitment to the long term sustainability of the Cairngorms for future generations.
