The Gateway to the Cairngorms

The National Geographic Magazine has just named the Cairngorm National Park as one of the world's greatest areas of unspoilt beauty. They include it it their list of "the 50 last great places on the planet" and compare it with the Antartic, the Gobi Desert and the Galapagos Islands.

So what better place to start your tour of this natural wonder than Stonehaven - the coastal gem, and just a short drive from the Cairngorms. You can relax and appreciate the majesty (orĀ  tranquility) of the North Sea before you appreciate the different but equally powerful majesty of the mountains of the Cairngorm National Park.
