Things To Do

The Cairngorms is a natural playground. The area offers watersports, snowsports some incredible walking, cycling routes and has 12 golf courses. It’s even home to the only sled dog centre, and the first permanent bridge-based bungee jump, in the UK.

The Scottish Government has now implemented Phase 3 of the transition out of lockdown for Scotland. Travel restrictions for recreation, leisure and exercise have been lifted, we ask if you travel to the National Park please be kind and considerate in the areas you visit and respect our local communities, the virus has not gone away, please protect yourselves and residents in the National Park.

Please ensure you maintain physical distancing of at least two metres from other people when outdoors, in shops and businesses. 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.

Overnight stays are permitted but not all accommodation providers are fully open so please check and book ahead. You can stay in a campervan or caravan on a formal site (if they are open) and we ask that you do not park overnight in existing car parks.
