The Cairngorms National Park is home to a quarter of the UK’s rare and endangered species. It contains the largest, best-connected and most natural habitats and conservation on a landscape scale.
Rothiemurchus is beautifully unspoiled and a special area for conservation. At its heart lies one of the largest areas of ancient forest in Britain with an extraordinary variety of wildlife that depends on it to survive.
