CairnGorm Mountain Scottish Day Resort| Natural Retreats

CairnGorm Mtn

Visitors of all ages and abilities are welcome at CairnGorm Mountain, with Scotland’s only funicular railway that allows everyone to take a trip to the top (at a height of 1097 metres) in just four minutes.

Located 9 miles away is the adventure capital Aviemore, a popular holiday destination, thriving with a large range of accommodation and restaurants to enjoy. CairnGorm Mountain is the most popular snow sports destination in Scotland, with 30km of ski runs, 11 lifts, a fully maintained freestyle park and an onsite Snow School that caters for everyone. You don’t have to have your own equipment either, because you can hire everything you need on the mountain itself. We also have a Storehouse café and mountain-top restaurant, where you can enjoy delicious local dishes, plus two retail stores that offer top snow sports brands, gifts and souvenirs.
