The Ptarmigan Restaurant - Cairngorm Mountain

The Ptarmigan Restaurant - Cairngorm Mountain


Due to the funicular not in operation, the Ptarmigan Restaurant is closed for the Summer and Spring operation of 2019.

The Ptarmigan Restaurant is located at the Top Station of CairnGorm Mountain railway. The highest restaurant in the UK, the Ptarmigan offers great panoramic views down to Loch Morlich and across to Ben Nevis and Ben Hope. You can also make a private booking for the Ptarmigan to celebrate that special occasion.

Throughout the day the atmosphere is light, informal and you can choose to eat a full meal or something lighter. For private functions, the restaurant transforms into a spectacular mountain top fine dining restaurant.
