Visitors from National Parks in Norway have told the BBC they can learn from the warm welcome people get in the Cairngorms National Park
National Parks in Norway have existed far longer than those in Scotland but unlike here, they are traditionally areas people are kept out of. On a visit to the Cairngorms National Park last week (24-26 September), a delegation spent time speaking to those who work in and manage the Cairngorms National Park and learned how working in partnership with others and marketing could benefit their rural communities.
The BBC spent time with the Norwegians during the visit and in the BBC Radio Scotland Out of Doors programme, revealed their fascination and interest in how we do things here.
