Year-round, Cairngorms:

The UK’s highest mountain railway journey offers spectacular views of a truly magnificent landscape. The 2km jouney takes 8 minutes to complete. The Ptarmigan Top Station lies 1097m above sea level - just below the summit of Cairn Gorm mountain, Britain’s 6th highest mountain. Here, you’ll find a viewing terrace and a mountain exhibition. Guides are also on hand from May to October to tell you more about the history, geology and lore of this area. If you prefer, you can walk to the Ptarmigan Top Station using the designated footpaths or in the company of a Guide.
