Cairngorm Mountain Railway (Scotland) Reviews
Description:Marvellous new funicular railway for transporting passengers to the top of the Cairngorm Mountain in Scotland.
Newest Review: ... you are able to access all runs and weather permitting ski all the way back down. Non skiers can have a look around at the top either at the viewing station or by going outside and can also stop for refreshments in the café or to buy some gifts in the shop.

~ ~ A visit to the Highlands of Scotland wouldn’t be considered complete unless you had ventured at least once out into the natural environment; the rugged and spectacular mountains.
