Craigellachie Forest Park, Cairngorms

The Story Behind the Image - Craigellachie Forest Park, Aviemore, Cairngorms

I love photographing the Cairngorms. What an incredible area, especially in autumn when the leaves start to change colour. One of the best places to enjoy autumn colour in the Cairngorms is the Craigellachie Forest Park just outside Aviemore.

The Forest Park lies directly across the busy A9 from Aviemore and can be reached from the village centre via a pedestrian subway beneath the highway.

Once you've reached the Forest Park the sound of the traffic recedes and you find yourself in a wonderful area of mixed woodland and small lochs, with trails leading you through quiet groves.

I came here in late October, when the leaves were a wonderful rainbow of gold and yellow. What an incredible sight, and so typical of the Cairngorms!
