Autumn in the Cairngorms

Autumn is a very special time of the year in the Cairngorms, it is somewhat magical to watch the landscape turn orangey brown. With bright blue skies and fiery coloured leaves littering the ground. If you are looking for a relaxing break, there are a lot less tourists at this time of the year.

During Autumn why not enjoy spotting the varied wildlife including; the Red Deer, Red Squirrel, Barnacle Geese and Grey Seals are just a few to be named.

Enjoy the delicious Autumnal larder, we love using seasonal produce at Muckrach. Such as apples, damsons, pears and plums. Native Scottish oysters, Lamb and Game are in their prime at this time of the year.

This is the perfect time of the year to spot the Northern Lights in Scotland. When the nights are clear of clouds and there is limited light pollution, you may catch a glimpse of this stunning light display.

So, wear your warm clothes, put on your walking boots and explore the Cairngorms this Autumn.
