Cairngorm Mountain

Based just outside of Aviemore, Cairngorm Mountain is an environmental and economic asset for Scotland

A unique asset for Scotland

Cairngorm is a place of outstanding natural beauty - a wild mountain environment that is home to many examples of flora and fauna.

As a mountain resort, it is also a key driver of the economy of Strathspey and Badenoch, at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.

We're committed to both protecting and enhancing Cairngorm's wonderful natural environment. We're also working to optimse the mountain's positive impact on the local economy through helping to build a sustainable resort business catering for thousands of visitors every year. 

Share your views on the future of Cairngorm

Members of the public are invited to put forward ideas on how Cairngorm estate can sustain and enhance its role in underpinning a wide range of business, community, sports and leisure activities to benefit future generations.
