The Nature Festival celebrates the National Park’s outstanding wildlife and scenery with Park-wide fun events for all ages – many of them free! There are so many walking trips in Scotland to experience, why not book with EasyWays? You can learn all about Scottish culture and continue to be surrounded by beautiful countryside which is constant throughout the East of Scotland.

It runs from 14th until the 15th of May 2016 across Badenoch & Strathspey, Blair Atholl, Tomintoul and Upper Deeside.

What can I see and do during the festival?

Check out last year’s highlights reel to get a glimpse into the wild and wonder of the festival!

You can even take part in the photo contest during your time at the festival.
Because a large part of the festival is based in Blair Atholl, near to one of our favourite walking trips in Scotland – the Cateran Trail, we thought we would detail the parts of the festival in that area we’re looking forward to!
