Spectacular Cairngorms National Park in North East Scotland

The spectacular Cairngorms, the largest National Park in the UK, at some 4,528 sq. km or 1,748 sq. miles, it is twice the size of the Lake District National Park and bigger than the whole of Luxembourg. The Park covers parts of Aberdeenshire, Moray, Highland, Angus and Perth and Kinross, and nearly half of the land within the National Park is considered ‘wild land’.

49 per cent of the park has been recognised as being of international importance for nature and is protected by European Law. With 19 Areas of Conservation, 12 Special Protection Areas and 46 Sites of Special Scientific Interest, it is easy to understand why.
Around 1.92 million people visit the Cairngorms National Park every year from all over the world. More than half of the visitors come from Scotland, 25 per cent from elsewhere in the UK and 21 per cent are international visitors from around the world.
