I had a wee break from Tiree this week. A friend drove Joanne and I up to Aviemore. Yesterday, in the morning, we took a trip up the Cairngorm Mountain Railway. The mountain railway - also known as a 'funicular' railway - runs for two kilometers through the Cairngorm ski area. In doing so it climbs 460m to the Ptarmigan top station, 150m below the summit of the mountain. Here is a video I shot of the ascent.
