Cairngorms Scenic Photo Posts

The Cairngorms Scenic Photo Posts project is a pioneering citizen science initiative to gather information about our landscapes as they change from day to day and year to year.

Recording our changing landscapes

Having found the post, you pop your camera, phone or tablet into the bracket, take a photo and then you can register and upload the image on to the Photo Posts website and contribute to a visual record of our changing landscape. Whether you are simply taking one photo whilst on holiday or you become an avid Photo Post volunteer (‘bagger’) we welcome your photographic contributions and your comments too.

We have chosen a variety of locations and some are a short walk away from settlements, others require a bit more of a hike.

Remember that there are risks associated with being in the outdoors and that you are responsible for your own safety and wellbeing.


**Please note that No14 Photo Post “Glen Avon, Tomintoul” is currently out of use – construction is taking place to create a new viewpoint platform here, and the photo post will not be accessible again until Spring 2017. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause**
