Please e-mail us with any comments, reports on broken links, suggestions or questions

We have included links to many other websites.  We shall eventually get round to informing all of these about our links, but if we haven't yet been in touch and you would prefer us to remove the link to your site, then please let us know.


There are lots of other activity providers in and around the Cairngorm National Park, but we have included only those that seem to offer single day activities on a non-residential basis.

Just in case you are tempted to come back via the B970 rather than the A9, the road does get very narrow in places and, very sadly, according to its website, The Potting Shed Tea Room at Inshriach has closed for business.  However, it seems that you  can still order whole cakes from their website.
