The Cairngorms National Park in Scotland is a place that is truly stunning, with spectacular landscapes, snow capped peaks and breathtaking scenery. The Cairngorm plateau is the highest and coldest in Britain. You can still see snow in places in the summer, and in winter it is a place of raw beauty. The Cairngorms, known as Am Monadh Ruadh in Gaelic, are mountains that form part of the Grampians and are the most famous of the mountain ranges.
