Abstract This report describes the geological and geomorphological contribution by BGS to a landscape character assessment of the Cairngorms National Park commissioned by the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA). To underpin assessment and description of landscape character areas, BGS provided bespoke bedrock and superficial deposits/geomorphological 'character' maps of the CNP with accompanying descriptive text. The resulting Landscape Character Assessment will be used to inform landscape and land management policy to assist the CNPA and its partners in delivering the four aims of the National Park. It will also help the CNPA ensure that plans and policies conform to the European Landscape Convention.
