Hiking in the Cairngorms National Park is a special experience as we explore a region named by National Geographic as one of the 50 Must Visit Places on Earth.
From the majesty of Royal Deeside (where the royal family have their Scottish residence at Balmoral Castle) to Strathspey, where the high plateau rises above the charming villages, flanked by some of Scotland’s oldest forests, Cairngorm National Park delights at every turn.
On this walking holiday, we enjoy some of the best easy hikes in the Cairngorms National Park as we explore Strathspey, Royal Deeside and Highland Perthshire on a two-centre circumnavigation of Scotland’s largest National Park. There is a huge variety of possible hikes to choose from, but wherever we venture, we’ll enjoy the fantastic scenery, sense of wilderness and rich history and heritage.
As well as savouring its wilderness, we’ll discover its heritage as we visit a 13th century Highland Castle and a wildlife reserve on this memorable walking holiday.
Please note that starting in 2024, we will be offering deluxe departures of this trip where you can opt for an upgraded hotel for the final three nights of the trip. These trips will do the itinerary in reverse, so you’ll start the trip off in Strathspey and then move on to Royal Deeside via Perthshire. Alongside upgraded accommodation there’ll be a few surprise extras but the rest of the itinerary remains the same.
