The journeys up and down in the funicular both offered stunning views when the sun is up and shining. Once on the top station the temperature could drop dramatically. They were renovating some part of the viewing verandas, but we still managed to see part of the full panoramic view. You can join one of the activities offered, such as... More

My girlfriend and I visited on the 31st August and although visibility was clear at the base of the funicular, unfortunately it was like pea soup at the top. The funicular was excellent and it was only 8 short minutes to the top with a very friendly and helpful driver. The exhibition at the top was ok, however it did... More

The whole trip was well organised and the staff very helpful. It is made very clear that you have to stay in the top station unless you have made alternative arrangements that have to be pre-booked. Unfortunately part of the viewing area was out of use as there was building work being done. Well worth a visit though - so... More

Brilliant value for money, and so worth a visit. The view from top is spectacular, and it is an experience to travel up and down a mountain by train.

Had a great trip on our visit to the Highlands, my wife uses a wheelchair and coped well with the trip to the summit unaided - where the views were spectacular (it was a sunny day)

I went on this service with my family. They all thoroughly enjoyed being on top of the mountain without the climb. The views from the top were amazing. It was packed when we were there. There was some building works ongoing but we did go there in the summer and this would be the only this could be achieved. regardless... More
