Exploring the Cairngorms can be a magical experience if you are properly equipped and prepared - physically, mentally and with the right gear - including knowing how to use it! The importance of competent navigation skills cannot be underestimated - knowing where you are is vital. Also be aware that the weather in the Cairngorms is very changeable. Within the space of 10 minutes a fine day can change to snow with a wind chill effect of minus 30 Celsius - any month of the year!

Above all enjoy the Cairngorms in safety and you will have memories that will last a lifetime! For practical information and advice, why not give the Cairngorm Ranger Service a call on 01479 861703 or pop in and see them in the Ranger Base at car park level.
