Cairngorms Nature Big May Weekend

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

11th - 13th May 2018 join in the fun, join the experts, 2 days, 60 events throughout the park for all the family.

Here's just a sample of some of the events:

An evening of mammal watching:
For a memorable wildlife encounter, spend an evening with Speyside Wildlife and watch the nocturnal creatures that visit our warm and comfortable, baited hide on the Rothiemurchus Estate in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. Your guide will meet you just before dusk, at the location just outside Aviemore within the Caledonian Pine Forest and walk with you down the wide track to the hide.

See the National Park from the water. This fun filled day will take you down the River Spey to see wildlife from a different angle with chance to develop some canoeing skills at the same time with our qualified instructors.
Don’t worry if you haven’t canoed before – novices are welcome!  Age limit 13+
