Did you know that with an area of 4528 square kilometres the Cairngorms are Britainís largest National Park? The smallest by way of contrast are the Norfolk Broads , covering only 305 square kilometres. Five of Scotlandís six highest peaks lie within the park Ė as unsurprisingly does Scotlandís alpine sports centre . Highest point in the park is Ben Macdui, 1309m (highest in the Broads is a dizzy 12m).
