Cairngorm furnicular finished

The highly controversial and environmentally dubious Cairngorm furnicular has now been completed and is awaiting the go-ahead from HM Railways Inspectorate before it can open to coach loads of skiers. The furnicular operators hope that this will be given before Christmas although there is no snow up there at the moment.

Ofcourse it will be of little benefit to climbers and walkers anyway as you can't get out of the fence enclosure at the top. You might not have to pay huge sums to use the car park for the time being, but the operators have reserved the right to re-introduce them at a later stage.
