National Park rangers receive new grants
Bookmark and Share
The Cairngorms National Park Authority has supplied a fresh grant to support the work of its rangers, in recognition of their valuable role in helping people enjoy visits there.

Britain's largest national park offers chances to go walking, ride on mountain bikes and make use of fishing rods and climbing ropes, all of which is aided by the work of rangers in the area.

For this reason, the authority has agreed to fund their work to the tune of £181,500 a year up to 2017.

Senior visitor services officer at the authority Peter Crane remarked: "The work of rangers helps over one million visitors enjoy the National Park each year by promoting and maintaining good paths and providing good information and interpretation."

Among the features of the national park is a landscape containing five of the six highest mountains in Britain, while its forests provide shelter for endangered and rare creatures such as red squirrels.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801272461-ADNFCR
