Guided Walks

Our guided walks are a wonderful way to experience the magic of the Cairngorms


Our ‘must-do’ experience exploring the heart of the Cairngorms National Park!

It might be easier than you think to walk to the summit of Cairn Gorm – why not head out from the Top Station alongside one of our knowledgeable guides, learning about the unique fauna and flora that survive in the elevated elements? Reaching incredible heights of over 4,000ft, you’ll experience memorable panoramas of the whole of the Cairngorms and breath-taking views.

Every day between May and October (subject to weather conditions) small groups of up to 10 visitors can enjoy this 90-minute guided walk on a mountain trail path to the summit.
