Windy Ridge

This short, popular path starts at the Cairngorm car park and leads up to the Ptarmigan restaurant where walkers may access the funicular to descend. The path also forms part of longer and circular walks up to Cairngorm and around the Northern Corries.

Now complete, work was carried out in 2010/11 and involved rebuilding parts of the lower built section and intensive construction in the middle steep sections with some construction towards the top.

Thanks to Hi Track, Highland Conservation and Upland Access Ltd for all their hard work on this path.
