Cairngorms Park - West

The west side of the Cairngorms National Park is probably the most visited courtesy of the proximity of the main A9 road which runs from Perth to Inverness skirting the western boundary of the park.

The main population centre and the best known town is Aviemore. The whole of this area has stunning views of the Cairngorms and other mountains as well as lochs, trails and an abundance of wildlife. For that wee bit extra interest in wildlife there is the Highland Wildlife Park between Kincraig and Newtonmore. This is a great place to visit for all the family.


Kincraig Wildlife Park

From Blairatholl in the south the scenery gets wilder and wilder as you travel north climbing up onto the base of the Cairngorms. However if you are coming from the west perhaps from Fort William up through Spean Bridge and then past Laggan Dam, the scenery is already spectacular before entering the Park.

 There is plenty to do in particular for those that love the great outdoors. Walking, hill walking cycling sailing canoeing, hang gliding, gliding, and of course skiing and much more.
