Parking charges return at Cairngorm Mountain

Published: 12/04/2022

Car parking charges at Cairngorm Mountain will come back into effect from Monday 25 April 2022, following the end of the winter snowsports season.

Issued on behalf of Cairngorm Mountain (Scotland) Ltd (CMSL)

Car parking charges at Cairngorm Mountain will come back into effect from Monday 25 April 2022, following the end of the winter snowsports season.

The charge will be £3 per vehicle per day in the main parking area at the base of Coire Cas. Drivers using the car park will pay on exit at an automated gate, either with cash or a contactless bank card.

Exemptions will be in place for people with blue badges as well as emergency and contractor vehicles.

The parking fee normally applies between April and October, but was temporarily suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As before, all income from the parking charges will be reinvested on-site, including helping to fund car park development, loos, drainage, footpath maintenance and other environmental initiatives, including the Cairngorm ranger service.

Resort operator Cairngorm Mountain (Scotland) Ltd (CMSL) designed the parking system following consultation with the Cairngorms National Park Authority and other stakeholders, and expects it will provide a smoother experience for car park users.

Susan Smith, chief executive of CMSL, said:

“Challenging weather conditions at this altitude make operating a car park costly and difficult, so the contributions from vehicle owners are a great help to offset running costs.

“Funds raised from the parking charge will be reinvested back into the estate so that we can continue to offer all our visitors the best possible experience.”
