Went up the mountain on the Funicular railway, stunning views, interesting exhibition with interactive features for kids. Well worth the trip.

Had a great afternoon mountain bike ride down from the top station to the train station in Aviemore. Very knowledgeable guide who adjusted the route to suit the level of riders. Nice, well maintained bikes (specialized rockhopper comp with 29" wheels) that were ideal for the terrain. Great scenery and good way to get to know some of the many... More

We didn't actually go to the correct Ski Lift area, by mistake we parked in the area before the main Cairngorm site. There were no signs so we assumed we were in the right place. Anyway, despite this we found a small muddy path that led up the other side of Cairngorm, the path disappeared and it was a bit... More

We were recommended to go on the funicular due to the stunning views but were extremely disappointed as dogs are not allowed to go up but if you walk up then you can take the dog back down on the train. Just doesn't make sense, especially in this day an age where they tell you not to leave the dog... More

Traveled up on the funicular railway, the day was warm and clear; the views were outstanding. Had coffee in the Ptarmigan restaurant overlooking the views - there was even a set of binoculars next to the window (chained up for obvious reasons!) to use to look at the views. Well worth the drive and railway car trip to see.

An exhilarating experience! So many activities around the area are fun but just not challenging enough, the guided mountain biking available here really raises the bar. It can be high speed and as exciting as you want it to be. The instructor was fantastic making the whole experience fun and safe. Highly reccomended for adrenaline junkies!

Went up the funicular on a cloudy day and the mist came in quite quickly once we got to the top - but it still looked amazing. Very atmospheric. It then cleared really quickly and some awesome views opened up. Can only imagine how it is on a clear day. Good restaurant and bar at the top too.
