CairnGorm Mountain is home to Scotland’s only funicular railway. This is a unique visitor experience that allows people of all abilities to reach the Top Station where the Ptarmigan Restaurant is located with panoramic views from over 3,500ft. There is also a  viewing terrace, exhibition, shop and the highest post box in the British isles. In order to protect the plateau outwith our snowsports operation, funicular passengers are not permitted to exit the top station to go onto the mountain unless they are booked on a guided walk or a guided mountain bike descent.

Below are the prices for a day ticket and an annual pass. Click on day ticket to book now, and tickets can be upgraded to an annual pass onsite. Please note that an annual pass allows visitors unlimited funicular travel for 12 months from purchase (cannot be used for snowsports). Junior tickets are for those aged between 6 and 16.
