Explore The Snow Roads Scenic Route
Spanning 90 miles of snow-capped peaks, rugged glens, outdoor adventures, cycling and delicious food and drink; the Snow Roads Scenic Route is a distillation of the finest elements of the Cairngorms National Park. Running through the eastern portion of this magnificent landscape, the route owes its name to the highest public road in Britain, and boasts some of the wildest, most dramatic Highland scenery imaginable. It’s also a route where you’re invited to really take your time to soak in the views, villages and nearby attractions.
Our Blairgowrie and Corriefodly Holiday Parks are located conveniently right at the start of the Snow Roads route. The 90 miles route can be explored in a day or you can just explore a small section. Alternatively, if you are looking for a two-centre holiday, our Deeside Holiday Park is ideally located at the far end of the route.
There is no shortage of quaint villages and quintessential Highland towns to take in along the route. Starting in Blairgowrie and finishing in Grantown-on-Spey, the route passes Tomintoul before heading deep into the heart of Royal Deeside, clocking up Braemar, Balmoral and Ballater along the way. Wander these elegantly planned Georgian and Victorian communities with their independent shops, pubs and restaurants, and heritage sites. Ballater and Braemar are steeped in royal connections. Check out the many shops in both towns proudly displaying Royal Warrants that signify them as suppliers to the Queen, or pay a visit to Crathie Kirk, the church where the Royal Family have worshipped for generations.
So, if you’re looking for a more leisurely alternative to increasingly busy routes like the North Coast 500 why not explore the snow roads.
