Topo Base Layer for Cairngorms National Park?

My scout troop plans to go to Scotland this coming summer (pending Covid restriction of course). Anyway, Caltopo has the routes, etc but not the contour lines like when I use it for hikes in the US.

Anyone can help me how to get those contour base layer for that area into the Caltopo? If there is none, is there any free app that can help that. AllTrail seems to have the contour base layer but I do not want to pay another Pro subscription (I have Caltopo Pro).

Please see:

    Thanks for reaching out! I assume you are talking about contour lines for the MapBuilder Topo base layer. We do plan to add contour lines globally in the near future although I don't have an exact timeline on when that will occur.

    In the meantime, have you checked out other base layers that might have the data you are looking for in that area? For example, TF Outdoors has contour lines and relief shading for Cairngorms National Park. Remember you can always switch or stack base layers in order to compare different data sets and learn as much as you can about an area.

    Thank you! Somehow out of the dozens of base layers I tried, that is the one I did NOT try! :-)
