The Cairngorms is Britains second largest mountain range. The main focus of the area is the tourist resort of Aviemore, a name synonymous with winter sports. Aviemore is surrounded by towering peaks, lochs, rivers and forests of native Caledonian pine. The ski area, nine miles southeast of Aviemore, remains Scotland's largest ski area. There is a funicular railway that runs all year to the Cairngorm plateau. In the winter its priority is quick ascent for skiers but it slows down in the summer to allow sightseers to savour the rare environment of the plateau from the glass sided carriages.
