Cairngorm Holiday Cottages

The Cairngorms are not only a paradise for walkers. Some may say golf spoils a pleasant walk, but there are plenty of excellent golf courses to enjoy walking and golfing holidays at the same time to dispute that belief. This part of Scotland is full of historical places of interest such as Balmoral and Blair Castle, and, for those who enjoy a dram of the hard stuff, a visit to distilleries such as Glenlivet, Dalwhinnie or Royal Lochnagar is recommended. Once you have explored the mountains, there are some incredible rivers to meander alongside or fish. For the more adventurous there is Aviemore and the Cairngorms Park, where you can ski or mountain bike down some very exhilarating runs.
