This is an explicit recognition of those who live and work in the Park.

To get here by car the route is via the A9 trunk road, which runs from Dunblane off the M9 and runs right through to Inverness and then up to Wick, This is a truly stunning journey passing through some of the most breath taking scenery you will wish to find in Scotland.
