Home > The living mountain / History


The Cairngorms have had a long and varied history.  Man’s influence in this area however is relatively recent, considering the geological history of the area!

At each step of the way, those who lived in this area left something of themselves - there are the things they built (villages and fields, towns and sporting estates) and the things they did (music, food, song, dance, drink and sporting activity) to remind us of their existence.
