At CairnGorm Mountain on 13thand 27th October loveable lurcher Moudy will demonstrate his abilities as a search and rescue dog at 11.30 in free demonstrations lasting 45 minutes. Between the 15th and 23rd of October visitors will have the chance to take part in native tree planting in free daily free 45-minute sessions at 11am and 2pm as part of a project to reinstate habitat for wildlife and plants. From 7th -30th October visitors can take the free ‘Exploroute’ and spend an hour following clues on a new easy trail which leads them around the lower part of the mountain, close to the car park and enabling them to make discoveries at every turn.
The attraction will also be open throughout November apart from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd. A ride on the funicular up the UK’s 6th highest mountain is unforgettable. Group discounts are available and pre-booking is not necessary. As well as travelling up on the funicular railway for spectacular views, home-baking, light lunches, gluwein and hot chocolate at the highest restaurant in the UK, there will also be a chance to call in at the Christmas Shop at the top which will be full of decorations, cards and lots of Christmas gift ideas.
Passengers can be dropped off at the door of the Base Station where mountain railway tickets can be purchased. For coach party groups a drivers’ cash-back incentive of £5 plus a £6 meal voucher applies.
