Product Description

The Cairngorms National Park is a very large mountainous area in northern Scotland that is home to four out of the five highest mountains in Scotland. In addition there are 52 summits over 900 meters high, and it is the largest area of sub-arctic mountain landscape in the UK. Much of the mountains are covered by heather moorland, although the forests of the Cairngorms contain rare remnants of the ancient Caledonian pine forest. This wild landscape supports some of the rarest flora and fauna in Britain, including the Golden Eagle, Osprey, and Capercaille, and the crystal clear waters of the rivers Spey, Dee and Don give the glens of the lower ground an extraordinary beauty as well as being famous for some the best salmon and trout fishing in the world.

This map card contains:

• Topographical Ordnance Survey (OS) 1:25,000 Explorer of National Park
• Topographical Ordnance Survey (OS) 1:50,000 Landranger of National Park
