Walking & Skiing
There are numerous oppurtunites to enjoy the wonderful mountain scenery that surrounds the Spey valley.
The famous Cairngorm range rises to a height of over 4,000ft and provides a fantasic oppurtunity to experience some of the best walking, climbing and in winter, skiing, in Scotland.
Recently completed, the brand new Cairngorm mountain funicular gives the less energetic a chance to experience the wonderful views that can be viewed from the high tops. It is not just skiers who use the funicular; in summer the funicular takes passengers to a height of 3,600ft, just below the summit of Cairngorm, from where you can enjoy a drink at the highest cafe in Britain.
In winter Cairngorm is Britain’s premier ski resort, with 35 downhill runs for skiing and snowboarding and tuition for all standards at www.theskischool.co.uk.
The Cairngorm Reindeer Centre is a unique experience. It is Britainï¿½s only reindeer herd roaming freely in their natural environment, and can be seen on the mountain or for a small charge at the Glenmore Centre.
