   CairnGorm Mountain is a great place to visit at any time of year. Ride the UK's highest funicular to just below the summit of Cairn Gorm, enjoy a walk with a Ranger or on one of the self guided routes. In winter, enjoy great snowsports on 30km of pisted runs suitable for beginners to experts. Lunch at the UK's highest restaurant, shop for gifts or mountain essentials and depart with unforgettable memories of this unique place.

On a clear day the views are great. The ride up/down the hill is highly enjoyable. The cafe is reasonably priced. Explaining the red phone box (highest in the UK, by the lower station) to our 5 and 7 year old was fun. It will receive incoming calls.

This is the second time we have been up the mountain and I have to say the improvements over the years are noticeable. The mountain is still amazing, the commentary useful, the views stella, but the gallery and display at the top is much more detailed and the coffee shop has much improved. Expensive but at least you are getting... More

Great walk and beautiful scenery. Our first Munro and a great way to start. It was the perfect day & visibility was good. Nice walk & very little climbing. Anyone with a little bit of get up and go can do this.

Terrific day out. It was worth the journey just for the views from the top of the mountain. The railway was fantastic and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Our experience was not as good as expected due to bad weather, it was very cloudy and rain so we didn't see as much as we would have liked. However what we did see is fantastic and I'm sure with better weather it would have been great. Make sure you go on a sunny, cloudless day

Was at the Cairngorm Funicular Railway that transported my wife and I to the highest shop and cafe in Great Britain. A lovely wee shop on 3rd platform and on the top platform was the cafe, with a nice selection of freshly made hot and cold foods. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great and limited the view point which on a... More

This is a great day out although I wouldn't say it takes a whole day. The staff are very kind and helpful, particularly one guy who gave us our tickets then was driving the tram back down the hill again later! He was very thoughtful towards my elderly mother who was a little bit slower getting on and off the... More
