Ryden | Planning

Acting on behalf of Highlands & Islands Enterprise, our Glasgow planning team has submitted the Cairngorm Funicular planning application to The Highland Council. They have worked to provide strategic planning advice on this complex project, which is the UK’s highest railway.

The Cairngorm funicular has been closed since September 2018 due to structural problems, and planning permission has been sought for the installation of supports to strengthen the funicular.

The railway, which was opened in 2001 at a final cost of £26m, connects a base station with a restaurant and wider ski centre, 1,097m (3,599ft) up Cairn Gorm mountain near Aviemore, Scotland.
