CairnGorm Mountain, great family adventures.

There’s lots for you to explore here at CairnGorm Mountain.Funicular railway in winter

Take a trip on the UK’s highest railway which offers spectacular views and the best weather watching opportunity in Britain from the viewing terrace. Visitors travel in safety and comfort on a 2km journey on the funicular railway from the Base Station at car park level (635m) to the Ptarmigan Top Station 1097m above sea level and just below the summit of Britain’s 6th highest mountain. In winter skiers and snowboarders flock to the mountain where the funicular gives them access to some 30km of pisted runs. In summer families can go on guided walks to the summit and back from the Ptarmigan Station. There are also opportunities to undertake guided walking or biking descents of the mountain.

The Ptarmigan houses the UK's highest restaurant, shop and postbox as well as a mountain exhibition where you can find out more about how nature and the elements have shaped this landscape and how animals and plants have adapted to survive here.  CairnGorm Mountain is a great place for a fun, family day out whatever time of year it is.
