Keeping all-terrain vehicles on the right track in the Cairngorms National Park
ATVs are used extensively across the Scottish National Parks and Scotland as a whole. They are an essential tool for management of deer and accessing remote areas for moorland, deer and livestock management. The downside of ATVs is that on soft, wet ground or fragile shallow soils they can cause significant erosion, habitat damage, carbon loss and landscape impacts. Cairngorms National Park Authority thought it was time to create a guide for ATV users with an aim to mitigate the problem.
