Funicular options – the business case
HIE confirmed that its intention is to repair the funicular. However, a final decision cannot be taken until a detailed business case is approved by the Scottish Government. The business case will also consider the alternative option of removing the funicular, and will take account of the impact of climate change by exploring the potential to develop the mountain resort further as a year-round attraction. Work is currently under way to prepare the business case, and it is expected to be ready to submit to the Scottish Government in December.
