National Parks Week – inspiring places, inspiring people

23rd July 2010

The Cairngorms National Park is joining the UK’s 14 other National Parks in a week of events to celebrate the people and places that have been their inspiration. National Parks Week runs from 26 July to 1 August 2010.

This year the Cairngorms National Park is welcoming some of the north-east’s top musicians to take part in a series of music events. The Deeside Sessions sees traditional music being performed in various pubs, hotels and other venues in Royal Deeside during this week and throughout August and September. John Carnie from Royal Deeside & Cairngorms DMO said: “Everyone is welcome to come along to hear these talented and exciting musicians – many of whom are from the Royal Deeside area.”

There are also a number of countryside events taking place across the week run by Rangers from Balmoral, Mar Lodge Estate, Atholl Estates, Explore Abernethy and Cairngorm Mountain to help people discover what’s around them and learn about the National Park.
