The Cairngorm Mountain Ranger Service is deployed and funded by Cairngorm Mountain (Scotland) Limited to provide stewardship and custody of the Cairngorm Estate on behalf of Highlands and Islands Enterprise. Operating from the Ranger Base at the foot of the resort the Ranger Service advises on the use and care of the estate.
Our team are responsible for the conservation of the mountain environment and provide education on the protected lands and wildlife surrounding the ski area. An essential part of their work is to maintain the public access paths leading from the car park onto the Cairngorm plateau which are integral to the exploration of this spectacular, rugged landscape.
As part of the planning conditions for the building of the Funicular Railway, Cairngorm Mountain (Scotland) Ltd has a robust Visitor Management Plan. The Ranger Service assist the Land Manager in ensuring this plan is adhered to, by talking to staff and members of the public to make sure they are aware of the summer restrictions and the reasons for them.
The Cairngorm Mountain Ranger Service monitor visitors on a daily basis. If you are using one of our car parks to access the Cairngorms, whether it be for an overnight trip, or a longer adventure, we ask that you fill out a route card so that we are able to keep track of cars left in our car parks and can provide assistance to the emergency services if required. Please only fill these out if you are parking in CMSL car parks as we do not monitor out with these boundaries.
During the summer & autumn 2021 work is being carried out on the Funicular railway and there will be public access diversions in place to direct visitors away from work sites. We kindly ask that all visitors accessing the mountain follow the signed diversion routes and observe all warning signs and barriers. For details on access restrictions please see the maps below.
