Bring the whole family and get up close and personal with the amazing nature of the Cairngorms National Park!

On 10-13 May Cairngorms Nature hosts its BIG Weekend, a celebration of the fantastic and diverse nature that calls the National Park home.  There are over 80 events happening from family friendly events designed for those who may be quite new to nature watching, through to volunteering and specialist events for the more seasoned nature lover.

You can take your little ones on a Golden Eagle trail, get them making crafty waders or handling butterflies.  There will be exclusive ‘Behind the Scenes’ events at estates such as Balmoral, guided walks with experts to learn about Gaelic place names and what they can tell us about the past inhabitants of the Park.  These are just a few of the events taking place over the weekend check out the full programme below.
