Ranger Service

Cairngorm Ranger Service

Cairngorm Mountain Ranger Service is deployed and funded by Cairngorm Mountain Limited to provide stewardship of the Cairngorm Estate on behalf of Highlands and Islands Enterprise and to advise on the use and care of the Estate.

The Cairngorm Mountain Ranger Service is a small team operating from the Ranger Base at the car park at the Cairngorm Ski Area. The Ranger Service organises and carries out work on mountain paths radiating from the car park and leads guided walks in summer. A large part of the annual environmental monitoring by CairnGorm Mountain Limited, in relation to the mountain railway, is fieldwork carried out and reported by the Ranger Service.


Visitor Management Plan

As part of the planning conditions for the building of the Funicular Railway, CairnGorm Mountain 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.
