Please ensure you maintain physical distancing of at least two metres from other people when outdoors, and adhere to Government guidelines and the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. Always plan ahead for any visit to ensure that the places and businesses you intend to visit are open and ready to receive visitors.
Use this list of car parks, their capacity, and their likeliness to be busy, to help you plan ahead when visiting the Cairngorms National Park. Some local car parks may have restrictions in place.
Please respect the interests of residents and land managers by using car parks and not parking on the road or blocking driveways and forestry tracks.
Take your litter home. If you are planning a trip to Scotland’s great outdoors, you may not always find a bin in some locations. Take a bag with you for your rubbish and bring it home.
If there isn’t a bin nearby, then please keep hold of your litter and take it home. Litter should always be placed securely into a bin or taken home. You can use a carrier bag or wrap things up in other packaging so your car stays clean. Or pop it in your pocket.
Even fruit peelings and skins count as litter when dropped, keep them with you until you find a bin or take them home.
If a bin is full please don’t place litter beside, on, or around the bin, this is still littering and can harm wildlife. Please take your litter home or use another bin nearby to put your litter in.
Bin your single-use face coverings and other PPE waste in litter bins or take it home with you. These cannot be recycled and should only be put in litter bins. This type of item can risk serious harm to our wildlife.
