Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend

A BIG weekend of fun!

There’s a reason that the BBC Springwatch team are basing themselves in the Cairngorms National Park for a whole year – with its high level mountain ground, Caledonian forest and some of the purest rivers the Cairngorms is one of the most amazing and unique places for nature in the UK. It also hosts 25 per cent of the UK’s threatened species including the iconic Scottish wildcat and the capercaillie. On 10-12 May you can come and experience the Cairngorms at the BIG Weekend, with over 80 events happening there will be something for everyone!
