Gateways to the Cairngorms Park

The areas approaching the park from the north south and east are very different from each other. We have included the main towns in the park as they do provide important accommodation and other facilities for visitors to the area.

In Particular the large and very attractive tourist town of Pitlochry which lies at the southern edge of the National Park in stunning surroundings. Geographically it appears that Pitlochry should be inside the boundary but alas was left out.

At the Eastern Boundary of the park lies the town of Aboyne on Royal Deeside. This is a delightful gateway town gently easing visitors towards the grand scenery of the area.

Royal Deeside has many delights and well worth exploring for tourists making their way towards the National Park.

  Pitlochry and Ben Breck

At the north of the park you have the town of Aberlour sitting proudly on Speyside. This of course is the heart of the famous Spey Whisky area.  Speyside is to Whisky as Bordeaux is to wine. There are many distilleries to be visited inside and just outside the National Park.

The west of the park extends to Laggan and so the approach town at this point of the compass is already included by the park authorities.
