Funicular Railway - Cairngorm Mountain


The funicular railway and Ptarmigan building are closed whilst we undertake detailed structural inspections on the railway. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
The Cairngorm Cafe is open for takeaways and mountain shop in the Day Lodge remain open.

Go discover more.... Rarest, highest, windiest, coldest.... the Cairngorms is a mountain range of extremes. CairnGorm Mountain is Britain's 6th highest and your gateway to an ancient glacial landscape. No matter what the weather, the mountain will inspire you. As well as the mountain garden, camera obscura and self guided trails with several geocaches to find - whichever way you choose to explore this mountain landscape it will reward you with its views, weather, flora and fauna.

Special Features

The land at the top of the railway and all around the ski area is very fragile and protected by law and we advise you to keep to the paths and keep all dogs under close control.
Watch out for more events and seasonal programmes on the web site.
