The areas approaching the
park from the north south and east are very different from each
other. We have included the main towns in the park as they do
provide important accommodation and other facilities for
visitors to the area.
In Particular the large and
very attractive tourist town of
Pitlochry which lies at the
southern edge of the National Park in stunning surroundings.
Geographically it appears that Pitlochry should be inside the
boundary but alas was left out.
the Eastern Boundary of the park lies the town of Aboyne on
Royal Deeside. This is a delightful gateway town gently
easing visitors towards the grand scenery of the area.
Royal Deeside has many delights and well worth exploring
for tourists making their way towards the National Park.
At the north of the park you
have the town of Aberlour sitting proudly on Speyside. This of
course is the heart of the famous Spey Whisky area. Speyside
is to Whisky as Bordeaux is to wine. There are many distilleries to
be visited inside and just outside the National Park.
The west of the park extends
Laggan and so the approach town
at this point of the compass is already included by the park
