This report describes the results of a desk-based geodiversity audit of the Cairngorms National Park commissioned by the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) and jointly funded by the British Geological Survey (BGS). It represents a first pass at selecting the most important localities for Local Geodiversity Sites in the Cairngorms National Park, based on available information and local knowledge of BGS geologists. Thirty-five bedrock geodiversity sites (including 23 Geological Conservation Review Sites) and fifty-four Quaternary sites (including 38 Geological Conservation Review Sites) are proposed as Park geodiversity sites. These sites should not be regarded as the final definitive list, but as a framework to which additional sites can be added as more information becomes available. The main outputs from the project are GIS and database files of the geodiversity sites.
