Images taken at Cairngorm Mountain. April 2017.
The funicular railway (an inclined track where one vehicle goes up and the other goes down at the same time, counterbalancing each other) transported us up the Cairngorm mountain to the top station and the Ptarmigan restaurant, where we warmed up with a slice of cake and hot chocolate. After battling against the wind on the reindeer hill trip earlier in the day, my son was quite happy to sit by the window and watch as his sister and dad went out on the viewing platform and got rather windswept! Eventually he realised it actually looked quite fun out there and we decided to join them in their fight against the elements! Unfortunately there wasn’t much to see from the viewing platform on this occasion, but an information board showed us what we would have seen if it had been a clear day! Nevertheless, the funicular train had been a fun experience and we were able to send some postcards to family and friends from the highest post box in the British Isles.
