Cairngorm Mountain Carting

Scotland’s only gravity fuelled mountain cart experience

Located at Scotland’s favourite mountain destination Cairngorm Mountain, join us for our new adrenaline pumped experience, opening on Friday 28th June 2024.

Person on mountain cart

Opening 28 June 2024

Your adrenaline experience begins at over 600 metres above sea level where you’ll be transported in an off road ‘Unimog’ up to the start of the track.

Here at over 900 metres above sea level you’ll enjoy spectacular mountain views before joining our guide for a daring downward descent in a three wheel cart.

Each session costs £25 per person. Online ticketing coming soon!

The ride of your life

The first ride of its kind in Scotland, the daring mountain carting experience is suitable for ages 14 and over.

After an exciting off road ride up the mountain side you’ll get a chance to take in the stunning views before twisting and turning at speed all the way down the 1.9km track. Your vehicle is a 3-wheel cart which benefits from a low sense of gravity adding to the daring ride.
