TV’s Nick Baker is our special guest, you can join him on a special family event or hear him talk about his life as a wildlife presenter. At Glenmuick Estate you can learn how highland estates work with nature, or if cooking is your thing you can join a foraging walk to find edible delights from Scotland’s Natural Larder.

In Tomintoul you can join the wildcat project officer on a walk to look for signs of the elusive Scottish Wildcat or experience an off road landrover tour to catch a glimpse of lekking black grouse or breeding waders.

Search for knitted nature in the ‘Woolly Woods’ or join the ranger at ‘Bogtastic’ to find out more about our amazing bogs in Blair Atholl. You can take an all-day walk to hear about Gaelic in the landscape or go on a ‘Nest Quest’ at Deshar Woods and find out about the incredible wood ant.

The whole programme of events is now online with over 80 events to choose from whatever your age or ability there is something for everyone.

We hope you will join us at the Cairngorms Nature Festival this year. It promises to be a weekend of fun for all the family, most events are totally free of charge, but some require booking in advance. Visit for the full programme
