Businesses

A community at the forefront of helping visitors to enjoy and look after the National Park and its rare and endangered wildlife.

Background

In 2020, the Cairngorms Business Partnership, on behalf of the project, invited the local business community to share their views about promoting the natural heritage of the Cairngorms National Park and ways to enjoy it responsibly.

Workshops were attended by businesses including estates, accommodation providers, wildlife guides, visitor attractions and outdoor activity providers; all felt they had an important role to play in helping people to enjoy and look after the National Park and the things that make it special, including its rare and endangered wildlife. You can read the notes from the workshops here.

Plan

Following the workshops, 131 businesses have completed an online survey to identify and understand in more detail how the business community feels about promoting the natural heritage of the Cairngorms National Park and ways to enjoy it responsibly.

The results of the survey will enable the project and the Cairngorms Business Partnership to develop a plan to help all businesses play an active role in maximising the visitor experience in the National Park and opportunities for wildlife to thrive. The plan will also be informed by the project's visitor research
