So many Munros ( mountains over 3000ft) and smaller hills and mountains. Excellent for scenery. Look out for Eagles, Dippers, Osprey's, deer. Local Munros are Lochnagar, and Broad Cairn,both near Loch Muick.

Driving from the south up through Braemar into the Cairngorms is a stunning drive, and worth allowing time for a walk and a picnic. The scenery is beautiful at every time of year, and should be viewed at different times. As a 'dark sky' area, the stars are often clear and bright and the wildlife…

“Cared for by the National Trust for Scotland. Stand before one of the largest tower houses in the land. Dating from the 15th century, Castle Fraser is a fabulous place to soak up the atmosphere of old Scotland and its colourful stories. Enjoy panoramic views and discover quirky features such as secret staircases, hidden trapdoors, a spy hole and a wooden leg. Built between 1575 and 1636 by the 6th laird, Michael Fraser, Castle Fraser is the most elaborate Z-plan castle in Scotland. It is filled with family portraits (including one by Raeburn), ornaments and mementos – all of which have their own colourful stories to tell about the lairds. One of the castle’s most evocative rooms is the striking Great Hall. The estate contains a flight pond, mixed woodland and open farmland, with two waymarked walks giving magnificent views of the local hills. The historic walled garden features shrubs, flowers, wall-trained fruit and vegetables. There is also a shop selling exclusive gifts.”
