Enjoying the Cairngorms National Park

The Angels Peak.

It never ceases to amaze me how uplifting an experience it is to visit the Cairngorms National Park. A weekend wild camping in August 2010 combined the humbling experience of walking in such a unique landscape with the joy of witnessing so many enjoy the outdoors.

Whilst our pleasures of walking, camping and nature watching were fully met, many others were climbing, mountain biking and even paragliding! The Winter ski resort of Aviemore certainly has more to offer all year round!

Remember it's not too far from the Angels Peak to the Devils Point!
