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 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. 

Coming up...

We're planning an extensive programme of public consultation during 2019 and 2020 to inform a new development masterplan for Cairngorm. 

Our vision is focused on creating a world-class, year-round visitor attraction at Cairngorm that will: 

  • celebrate and enhance the natural environment 
  • generate and support high-quality jobs in the resort business and the wider community 
  • draw more visitors to Badenoch and Strathspey 
  • play a key role in developing Scotland's mountain tourism industry 
  • prove attractive to private investors.
