HIE Update on the Funicular

This entry was posted on October 3rd, 2019.

Excerpt from the meeting of the Economy, Energy and Fair Work Committee in the Scottish Parliament on the 24th September. 

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. 

Video of the committee session, which also took evidence on a range of other matters from both HIE and Scottish Enterprise, is on YouTube, the Cairngorm section begins at around 21:20.
