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.

In public ownership through HIE, Cairngorm estate has strong potential to grow and sustain its reputation as one of Scotland’s most important destinations, attracting thousands of visitors every year and playing a key role in the country’s mountain resort sector. We're committed to both protecting and enhancing Cairngorms 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.

Masterplanning: creating a shared vision for the future

The final round of public consultation to inform a new long-term masterplan for Cairngorm Estate is now under way.

Specialists commissioned by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) have drafted a vision and strategy document, drawing on public engagement that took place online and in Badenoch and Strathspey communities in February and March.

Anyone with an interest in Cairngorm’s future as both an environmental and economic asset for Scotland, is invited to submit comments that will inform the masterplan, which will be published later this year.

The online survey is now live and will remain open until 14 September.

Please feel free to share this information with anyone who would be interested in contributing to a positive future for Cairngorm.
