The Heart 200 route takes you into the UK’s largest national park, the Cairngorms, around Blair Atholl and Bruar. Explore further into the national park by going up the A9 from Bruar, or visit the eastern side of the national park via the Snow Roads from Blairgowrie, or go for a walk up into Glen Tilt from Blair Atholl or to the Falls of Bruar from the House of Bruar.
The Cairngorms is a massive area and would take you a lifetime to explore fully, but Heart 200 will at least show you a sample of the national park and open up opportunities to look a little bit further into what the area has to offer.
