A plan has been unveiled for managing the largest national park in the UK for the next five years.

Proposals for the Cairngorms include increasing woodland, restoring peatland and investing in walking routes on Deeside and Speyside.

The proposal will be considered by the Cairngorms National Park Authority’s (CNPA) board. It will then go to the Scottish government for approval.

The park covers parts of the Highlands, Aberdeenshire and Perthshire.

The park measures 4,528 sq km, making it bigger than the whole of Luxembourg.

Grant Moir, the CNPA’s chief executive, said: “There has been an incredible amount of work gone into developing the next National Park Partnership Plan (NPPP) - not only from our staff but from all the partners who have contributed and of course the public who took the time to respond to last year’s consultation.”
