Transcript of My Holiday

Newtonmore, Scotland
By Stacey Harris My Holiday Where I went? In 2007 me and my family went on holiday to a place called Newtonmore in Scotland. Newtonmore is in the Cairngorm National Park in the Scotish highlands. We travelled by car and it took us around 7 hours to get there. It was one of my favourite holidays as we saw lots of breath-taking views and had some great days in and around Inverness-Shire. Facts about the Cairngorm Nation Park Things we did on the holiday Just some snipets of what we did: We went to a lovely beach called Loch Morlich.
We visited John O Groats We to a trip to Fort William We had many walks in the area We visited Aviemore many a time Me and my mom went pony trekking through woodlands And of course w e went up the Cairngorm mountains 4 of Scotland's 5 highest mountains are within the Park, there are 52 summit over 900 metres. 10% of the land area is over 800 metres and 68% is over 400 metres above sea level. The National Park is home to 25% of the UK's threatened bird, animal and plant species. Major centres of population are Aviemore, Ballater, Braemar, Grantown-on-Spey, Kingussie, Newtonmore, and Tomintoul. Tourism-related businesses account for about 80% of the economy, including activities such as ski-ing, walking, fishing, shooting and stalking. It is thought that at least 1.4m people visited the Park in 2007 Aviemore Aviemore in the Cairngorms National Park is surrounded by stunning scenery and is a major highland holiday resort. Aviemore is an all year round destination with a wide range winter and summer activities to choose from. As one of the country’s top ski areas and most popular summer holiday area in the Highlands Aviemore is ‘alive’ all year round.

Aviemore offers shopping facilities for the outdoor enthusiast together with a range of local retailers offering gifts, crafts, restaurants, pubs and cafes.

Also there is a railway station in Aviemore where we went on a steam railway ride around the area. The approx population count revealed that in 2006 around 2,440 peopla live in Aviemore. The Cairngorm Mountains The Cairngorms , group of mountains forming part of the Grampian Mts, in Highland, Moray, and Aberdeenshire. The name cairngorm is given to an ornamental yellow or brown quartz found in the mountains. The group includes the peaks Ben Macdui (the one we went up......I think), Braeriach, Cairn Toul, and Cairn Gorm. A winter sports industry centered in the town of Aviemore has developed since World War II. Thank you for listening! :) I hope I have given a good representation of one of my favourite holidays. So if you are stuck for a holiday destination - consider the Cairngorm Nation Park.
