19 January 2011

The Adventure Travel Trade Association was mentioned in a recent article on BBC News about National Geographic Traveler Senior Editor Norie Quintos' recent visit to the Scottish highlands while attending the annual ATTA World Summit:

The Cairngorms National Park joins Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia and Alaska's Kodiak Island in the National Geographic Traveler's 20 Best Trips.

Senior editor Norie Quintos said the "primeval landscape of the north and west" draw visitors to the Cairngorms.

The park covers areas of the Highlands, Aberdeenshire and Perthshire.

Ms Quintos visited the Cairngorms while attending the Adventure Travel World Summit in Aviemore in October last year.

In the magazine article she writes: "Fierce Bronze Age warriors, Vikings, and Gaelic-speaking clans all have called the rugged Highlands home.

"Today, the primeval landscape north and west of the Highland Boundary Fault attracts outdoor enthusiasts drawn to the mist-shrouded mountains, shimmering lochs, sheer cliffs, and sandy beaches."
