Cairngorm Classics

Home to one quarter of Scotland’s native forests, five of the country’s six highest peaks and many rare and endangered species of wildlife, the magnificent Cairngorms National Park is often described as nature’s playground thanks to its outdoor pursuits, from its incredible walking and cycling routes to water sport and snow sport activities, 12 golf courses and even the first permanent bridge-based bungee jump in the UK. With the Fife Arms set right at the heart of the park, there’s no excuse not to make the most of what is right on our doorstep.
