The Cairngorms cover 300 sq miles, making it the most mountainous area in Britain, with an equally wide range of wildlife. This walking guidebook contains 28 carefully selected walking routes of 1.5 to 18 miles, each tested and graded by experienced walkers.
All routes include information on getting to the start point, a detailed route description, large-scale OS mapping and notes on key features and wildlife to look for. The native pine forest of the Cairngorms is one of the final retreats of the red squirrel and supports small, uncommon birds like crested tits, redwings and crossbills.
Key places to visit include Loch Garten, the RSPB osprey breeding site, an ascent to the summit of Carn Daimh, part of the Speyside Way, with its splendid panorama of the countryside surrounding Glenlivet and the Falls of the Glas Allt.
