  • It is difficult to think where you can find more beautiful scenery in the UK. The whole place is gorgeous, with a multitude of hidden gems to be discovered. And reindeer.  more »
  • She spent a few days in August 2018 in the park in an original Yurt. Ghele this was a fun experience, especially for someone who doesn't like going camping.

  • One of the most beautiful areas in Britain, amazing views everywhere you go. Plenty to do and see. If you ha e not been and are considering a visit then you can't go wrong. The weather can be unpredictable but it will change for the better and reward you with astonishing views.
  • Love this place, normally go up every year around February time. This year (2019) there wasn't as much snow except for the top of the mountains. The scenery was magnificent and there was wildlife everywhere.
  • Had an absolute blast cycling round here. There's tons of different tracks for all abilities here. There's also a few nice cafes etc along the way to stop and refuel before blasting on. Highly recommend hiring (or bringing your own) bikes and having a trek around all the different routes. They are all clearly sign posted with difficulty and mileage, very little chance of getting or ending up going much farther than you had intended.
  • Stunning part of Scotland that covers a large area and is the gateway to the Highlands. Some great drives along the few roads and even better walks. Just be prepared for sudden weather changes. If you get a sunny day in the summer then you're in for a treat.
  • Scottish national park with some of the highest mountains in the country (3 of them over 4000' above sea level). A large area of good walking terrain with no public vehicular access across it: typically have to "walk in" from the perimeter for either a multi-day expedition or a very long day walk. A classic British walking area.
