I am always in awe of the views when I return home here for a holiday. I recently introduced my youngest son's to the snow on the mountains for some sledging and they loved it!
Fantastic setting, wildlife, views, nature walks (in summer), skiing & winter sports and helpful staff that are a hive of information to anyone who needs advice.
A restaurant offering soup, hot chocolate etc to help you to defrost.
Although there are fee's to pay for different attractions here, there are no fee's or costs to just park up, unload the kids with their sledges for some fun in the snow in winter... Or to enjoy bicycle rides with them in the warmer months through the park.

The name says it all the Siberian huskies made it very special. The lack of snow down at the base of the mountain was not enough to spoil our day.

There's something for everyone here. The scenery is breathtaking especially over Loch Morlich towards Cairngorm. You can ride the Finicular up the mountain or hike and ski for days into the Arctic landscape. Lower down there's trails for all abilities, watersports and visitors centres. Reindeer, Dog sledging and clay pigeon shooting are a few. The Frank Bruce Sculpture trail is a unique attraction and eating out is well catered for with cafes, bars and restaurants of all types. Accommodation is abundant from camping to 5* and there's easy access by car or train. Within the park there are easy to use bus services and cycle hire.

I urge everyone to go and see these wonderful sculptures from a very talented and generous being. It is free to marvel at this mans work. He never took a penny for his work during his lifetime and gave the sculptures to the Scottish Forestry Commission for us all to enjoy., You only pay for the car park which is £1.00 for an hour. Which is fair enough as they have to pay for the upkeep of the car park and all the information leaflets they leave for you to take away. The sculptures are located at Feshiebridge. IT is called The Frank Bruce Sculpture Trail. IT is also wheel chair accessible.
