This ride is perfect for those who want to get a taste of what riding in the Cairngorms is like! Due to the popularity of our longer Cairngorms holidays, we have created a perfect 4 day route to show those of you who only have a few days to spare some incredible views in this vast and varied landscape. This trip is ideal for those looking for a short break jam packed with adventure and amazing scenery.
The Cairngorms National Park is renowned for the huge variety of geology and vegetation within its bounds. Home to 5 of Britain's 6 highest peaks, it is the largest national park in Britain. One quarter of Britain's rare and endangered species call this place home and on the trails you can often spot Ptarmigan, golden eagles, osprey, mountain hare, capercaillie, red deer, wildcats and otters just to name a few.
On this epic adventure, we show you the spirit of these glens as we explore some of the amazing landscape on offer. We will base ourselves on Mar Lodge estate and spend 4 days exploring our surroundings. We will climb hills, ford rivers, wander through the heather and see the best of what the Cairngorms National park has to offer. After each day of riding and exploring, you will spend your nights in Braemar; a gorgeous, thriving highland village steeped in history and Royal connections.
Get ready for a wild and rugged experience that will combine a love of horses with stunning Scottish landscape in an adventure of a lifetime.
Price based on sharing a twin or double room - single rooms may be available (but cannot be guaranteed) at an extra cost. Single supplement is £180. If you are travelling alone and willing to share a room, you do not need to pay a single supplement as we often have other riders doing the same who are happy to keep costs down by sharing with another lone traveller of the same sex and wherever possible we try to match sharers by age etc too. Payment can be made by cheque, bank transfer or credit/debit card via PayPal below. Please contact us if you require our bank details for transfer.
