What’s On W in april

elcome to the Cairngorms National Park and the April edition of What’s On, the free events guide. This month sees some of the Park’s best loved attractions throw open their doors, like Blair Castle, which is celebrating its 750th year! Landmark Forest Adventure Park (Carrbridge) and the Highland Folk Museum (Newtonmore), too, are back to full operation after winter and both are laying on lots of Easter fun activities for all the family from the 6th until the 22nd. Mar Lodge Estate, on the east side of the Park, is also getting in on the Easter action with its Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt and open day on the 21st. The wildlife in the Park is waking up from winter too. If you want to know more about spotting rare species from pine martens to ospreys, which are starting to make an appearance, then head along to The Grant Arms in Grantown. This is hosting its Wildlife Book Festival, from 15th-19th, which is run in association with BBC Wildlife Magazine. As well as talks, the festival includes guided tours from celebrity wildlife experts. If you fancy a faster pace, then why not enter the Glenlivet 10k or Run Balmoral running races on 7th April and 27th & 28th April respectively? Whatever you do, whether it’s living fast or slow, the Cairngorms National Park has something for everyone!
