Established in 1961 and offering over 30km of ski runs, Cairngorm Mountain ski resort, is the UK’s largest and busiest skiing destination. 2013 saw over 120,000 skiing and snowboarding visitors. The Mountain features the only Funicular railway in Scotland and is the main transport link to the top of the Mountain with circa 80,000 visitors making the ascent predominantly in the summer season. Boasting the UK’s highest restaurant, sitting at 1,097m above sea level, the Ptarmigan building boasts impressive views of Britain’s highest mountain plateau. 84% of visitors to the Resort use the catering facilities and consequently investment in the food and beverage facilities forms a significant part of Natural Retreats immediate development plans.
