Seasonal rangers will once again be ‘on patrol’ in the Cairngorms National Park this year ensuring everyone has an enjoyable time while staying safe and respecting the Park’s environment and communities.

The Board of the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) agreed at an online meeting this morning (Friday 22 January) to finance a seasonal ranger service for 2021, supporting existing services during what is expected to be another busy visitor management season.

The move creates nine new jobs with a further five ‘Kickstart’ Youth Placement opportunities for young people seeking a start in this type of career for which funding has been secured through a collective UK National Parks bid.

A seasonal ranger service was established for the first time in 2020 in response to the high numbers of visitors coming to the National Park after the first lockdown was lifted and people were able to travel again. While most visitors did the right thing, there were issues in relation to fires, litter, human waste and traffic problems.
