The Funicular Railway and Ptarmigan Building are closed whilst we undertake detailed structural inspections on the railway. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Please also note that we have paused additional Season Pass sales until we have greater clarity over our Funicular Railway operations.
PLUS, an additional, epic line-up for families this July & August!
Wild Things Treasure Hunt – Young explorers will be encouraged to explore the mountain in search of the ‘wild things’, ticking off each creature as they find it, within our mountain garden! Our ‘wild things’ stem from local illustrator; June Armstrong and the incredible creatures found on the mountain.
The Messy Mountain – Available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, our Storehouse Mezzanine will be transformed into a creative cave, full of exciting activities for young explorers to make, draw and build. From ‘build-your-own’ funicular carriages, to colouring competitions, there will be plenty to get stuck into.
All young explorers will be offered our new Funicular Fun Fact Sheets to help them get even more out of the UK’s highest Funicular Railway, here at CairnGorm Mountain.
Mountain Dress-Up & Selfie Frames – NEW dressing up box with a huge variety of fun accessories, where we will encourage young explorers to dress up as the ‘ultimate train driver’ PLUS awesome selfie frames dotted around the mountain for that perfect social media moment!
#capturecairngorm – Epic social media photography competition running from May-September on Facebook. Visitors can upload their CairnGorm Mountain snaps using that hashtag, entering a prize draw to win either a Funicular Family Annual Pass or a 2018/19 Snowsports Season Pass!
Essential Summit Walk – Our ‘must-do’ experience exploring the heart of the Cairngorms National Park (and definitely one of the easier ways to bag a munro!) It might be easier than you think to walk to the summit of Cairn Gorm – why not head out from the Top Station alongside one of our knowledgeable guides, learning about the unique fauna and flora that survive in the elevated elements? Reaching incredible heights of over 4,000ft, you’ll experience memorable panoramas of the whole of the Cairngorms and breath-taking views. Every day between May and October (subject to weather conditions) small groups of up to 10 visitors can enjoy this 90 minute guided walk on a mountain trail path to the summit.
