I often ask myself why the Cairngorms National Park is so special. Is it the mountains and lochs, the adrenalin fuelled activities or the plethora of wildlife unique to the area? As the UK's largest National Park it has so many special places to enjoy across its well cared for landscape; ancient pine forests, some of the highest mountain ranges and a selection of rare and unique wildlife species.
As an amateur photographer the opportunity to go 'shooting' on a Scottish estate is grabbed with enthusiasm. On my second outing with two amazing people, we learnt more about the landscape, the wildlife and the history combined with photography, advice and fun.
