Looking for fun time out? This is something anyone can take part in and enjoy. All you have to do is find the Scottish Wildcat! 132 painted models of the Scottish Wildcat have been sited around Newtonmore, in the Cairngorms National Park. They form the Wildcat Experience - the treasure hunt with a difference! Search for them in gardens, on roof -tops and up trees.
Certificates of achievement are awarded and there are prizes to be won depending on how many models you track down. This is a great time out in the fresh air and in spectacular surroundings.
To join the hunt, buy a Trackpack (£10) from the Wildcat Centre, Main Street, Newtonmore PH20 1DD.
98 of the model Wildcats can easily be spotted by wheelchair / pushchair users. With a bit of a bumpy ride along unmade roads a further 11 can be found. And if roads with a steep incline are not an obstacle, 13 more can be spotted. The remaining 10 are in places that are not accessible with wheels.
