CairnGorm Mountain is a very special and unique place to visit throughout the year. Located in the heart of the UK's largest National Park, CairnGorm is Britain's most popular winter snowsports destination with 11 ski lifts including the funicular railway, and over 30km of pisted runs suitable for beginners to experts.

During the summer months the mountain can be explored several ways. Travel to just below the summit of Cairn Gorm, Britain's 6th highest mountain on the UK's highest funicular railway. At the top enjoy the mountain exhibition, lunch at the Ptarmigan Restaurant and take in the spectacular panorama from the viewing terrace. Take a Walk @ the Top with a ranger, a 90 minute summit walk starting from the Top Station, walk to the summit and then take the train back down, or explore the mountain on one of the self guided trails. There is also a mountain garden to enjoy, a camera obscura, various exhibitions and two shops selling a large number of mountain essentials and gift ideas. Whatever the weather, CairnGorm is a great place to spend the day.
