Took a ride up to the top of the mountains on the funicular and the family (husband and 3 children) had a wonderful couple of hours. Waited for it to be a fairly clear day and had magnificent views. Kids all enjoyed a hot chocolate,...More

Visited near the end of winter. Luckily it had snowed for a couple of days. Visited the Ski resort and the Cairngorm Mountain. Didn't ski but enjoyed a pizza and coffee at the Costa Coffee. The access roads were very good. Comfortable drive.

A good drive into the forest with the knowledgeable Alph as our ranger who was filled with humorous stories. It was a good two and half hours out and about.

The car park has an amazing view which only gets better once you jump on the railway and begin your ascent. It's truly wonderful and even lazy people like me get a chance to enjoy the view without any of that walking up a mountain.

I have visited the Cairngorms for over 35 years. I have ski'd the mountain mostly but also climbed the peaks. For skiing the area is simply not reliable. You could never say snow is guaranteed and even when it does snow the hills are so...More

My friend and I visited for a week hoping to see the northern lights, although we were not lucky in that aspect, the caingorms are just the perfect wintery dream. We walked, went up the mountain on the funicular, played in the snow, ate in...More

The Cairngorm Range dominate the Park offering remote and challenging high level walks and real camping. The views are incredible but the weather can be daunting at times. However, there are a wide range of low level walks, mountain bike trails and multiple activities for...More

people will have their preferences but I would say each mountain area is different in character, due to the geology, weather patterns (east side is generally drier) and of course the history. Glencoe is more brooding and... More
