The ski-season is well underway and Cairngorm Mountain has invested in new facilities at the base station for all visitors to enjoy. Highland Wildlife Park is also getting ready for its female polar bear to arrive … who knows we could have a little one later this year!
Spring brings the Speyside Whisky Festival 30 April – 4 May followed by the Cairngorms Nature Festival on 16 & 17 May – well worth keeping on eye on what is planned as details become available on www.cairngorms.co.uk
