CairnGorm Mountain is a great place to visit at any time of year. Ride the UK's highest funicular to just below the summit of Cairn Gorm, enjoy a walk with a Ranger or on one of the self guided routes. In winter, enjoy great snowsports on 30km of pisted runs suitable for beginners to experts. Lunch at the UK's highest restaurant, shop for gifts or mountain essentials and depart with unforgettable memories of this unique place.

We were on the guided tour up Cairngorm from the funicular. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The weather was sadly pitiful but hey, this is lovely Scotland!!

We travelled 1.30mins to get here it was worth it. Make sure that you are wrapped up as it was cold on the top of the mountain. There is a cafe that you can get hot food as well.

We had the luck of visiting on a perfectly clear day where you see the full spectre of the Scottish Highlands which was amazing and which I would rate 5, however unfortunate in that the train broke down. I know that occasionally things go wrong...More

We took the vernicular to the top and the view was amazing. The only downside was if you took the train you could not get out onto the mountain at the top. Apparently for safety reasons. You do have a small platform attached to the...More
