The Cairngorms

The Cairngorms feature the highest, coldest and snowiest plateaux in the British Isles and are home to five of the six highest mountains in Scotland Ben Macdhui at (1309 m), Braeriack at (1296 m), Cairn Toul at (1293 m), Sgoran Lochain Uaine at (1258 m), and Cairngorm at (1245 m) These mountains are all Munros, with another 13 mountains with this categorisation across the area, of which another five are among the twenty highest peaks in the country.

The skiing and winter sports industry is concentrated in the Cairngorms, with three of Scotland's five resorts situated here.

This ski centre has been operating since the mid 1970s starting small with 1 poma ski tow, it has grown to a year round highland activity centre with 20 maintained ski runs, 15 lifts and some snowmaking coverage.
Snow sports can take place any time between December and April depending on weather conditions, it is sometimes possible to ski before December and into May. Winter operating hours are normally between 9am and 4pm depending on the daylight hours.

Learn to ski and board with professional instructors. Choose from either a group or private lesson. You can pre book skiing and snowboarding lessons (with equipment) by contacting our resident ski school, skiing, terrain park, snowboarding and sledging are all available subject to conditions. There are over 30km of ski runs and a fully maintained snow board fun park, suitable for all levels from beginner to expert.

View the Cairngorm Mountain's ancient landscape from the comfort and safety of the UK's highest funicular railway.
The mountain railway is open daily, first train up departs at 10.20am, the last train to the top is at 4.00pm and the last public train down is at 4.40pm, trains run every 20 minuets or subject to demand, yYou can also walk up and get the train back down again.
The railway opened here in late 2001, running from a base station at 637 metres up to the Ptarmigan Centre, situated at 1097 metres, 150 metres from the summit, It was built amidst some controversy, with supporters of the scheme claiming that it would bring valuable tourist income into the area, whilst opponents argued that such a development was unsuitable for a supposedly protected area.
