Cairngorm Mountain Railway takes guests on an unbelievable journey through the Highlands and Cairngorms National Park. Can you make it up the highest mountain range in the UK?

As you might imagine with this great attraction being situated in a National Park, the mountain railway is surrounded by some of the most breathtaking views to be found in the UK. But you don’t have to take the train, visitors can spend the day climbing or walking up to the top of the mountain and reserve their train ride for the end of a tiring day where they will be carried leisurely back down to earth with a chance to further enjoy the scenery along the way.

Whichever way you choose to get to the top, once up there you will find a place where you can relax and enjoy a fresh meal looking out over the glorious Cairngorms National Park in the highest restaurant in the UK, Ptarmigan Restaurant. You’ll also have the chance to browse two of the highest souvenir shops in the UK, The Shop at the Top and the Mountain Shop.
