TripAdvisor

The funicular railway at Natural Retreats CairnGorm Mountain is currently rated 4.5 out of 5.
“This was first time we had gone on the Funicular Ride which was such a thrill starting with going through clearing in trees to fantastic views of the surrounding area. When at the top the Restaurant and Gift Shop were very good. Walked along paths to View of Cullins on Isle of Skye.”
“We were taken here by friends for the first time and all of us loved it! The funicular ride is super, but the views from the top of the mountain are breathtaking! The funicular is great fun! There's a little museum, cafe and shop on top, so no one's going to be bored."
"Well worth a visit and I'm amazed we've never taken the time to visit before now! Go and see it all for yourself- you won't be disappointed!”

This is a great offer and a great experience. We went yesterday. We took the train to Aviemore, then the bus from the station to the Cairngorm Ski Centre where the Funicular starts. The bus cost £3.80 return. Highly recommend this trip.
Heat added.

Scotland the Country at the Top of the UK at the moment.

Just be warned that you aren't allowed to leave the top station if you take the Funicular up. The only way to get out is to pay for ludicrously expensive "guided walks" - along a clearly marked man made path...

You can surely take a quick sneak outside the top station. We were there in April, and saw a few families playing outside with the snow. We also walked a bit outside the station. There is a great view from inside the building, too!

just jump the wall, that's what we did! theyre trying to conserve the landscape. you can re enter at the front if you jump over the low wall at the back

Off to Scotland in a couple of weeks and staying nearby for the first week so ordered deal and hoping for a clear day. Thanks for posting.

We're always really lucky weatherwise when we go to Scotland, after the west coast we are staying on Tiree which has a wonderful climate (usually!)

tempted!!!

Be careful with this deal. I asked my wife if she wanted me to take her up the funicular and she slapped my face and hasn't spoken to me for a day now. Cold.

You might have reminded her some forgotten pleasure...

ty Op, only live an hour away so have bought this as partner has never been up (mostly due to price tbh)

Do we have to walk the mountain for the ride? Or am I missing something

Have been here and you can go outside onto a kind of viewing platform at the top but by golly there will be a cold wind blowing whatever time of year you go!

Hot on price though, well worth it at a tenner

You drive to the car park and catch the funicular from there, it is probably about an 8 mile drive from Aviemore, there is also a bus that will take you there if I remember rightly. Lovely scenery all the way past Loch Morlich then into the mountains, have made regular visits to Coylumbridge which is en route and can highly recommend

Thank you, I've started to be adventurous

Well worth it,went there in July,lovely views
The Cafe at the top is pretty expensive though
Also beware if there are any pensioners going at the same time as you,as the ones on our tram just barged through all the families to get to the seats

Its ridiculous that people try to make you think you cannot walk on a hill without paying a guide. There is no law in scotland which would prohibit you from walking on the hill from the top and wonder how they might try to prevent you?

Next thing they'll be telling me i cant park my car in town without paying money into a machine

Before we first went there, I read that same warning on their website, and I was totally put off by it, imagining, I would not be allowed to leave the funicular train at top station at all. But to my observation in reality, this just serves as safeguarding, because mainly the visitors there are families with little children. Mainly, this warning should be taken as ''do not attempt to go walking outside top station without proper equipment'', for example.

The exit to the mountain from the area you get to by the funicular is closed off and can only be opened by staff members - as you use the doors skiers would use in winter.

The only way to get out on the mountain is to walk all the way up from the bottom, which isn't a hard walk. It just takes time.

​Yeah, this is also a good healthy option, while there is no snow yet!
