Photographer's Note

That day I decided to walk to the top of Cairn Gorm! Before I reached the Ptarmigan restaurant I was passed by the train couple of times.

The Cairngorm Mountain Railway is 2 km long and the highest railway in the United Kingdom. It is a funicular railway that ascends the slopes of Cairn Gorm, the UK's fifth-highest mountain, in the wilderness of Scotland, near Aviemore in Inverness-shire.

The Cairngorms National Park is a national park in north east Scotland, established in 2003. It covers the Cairngorms range of mountains, and some surrounding hills. It is the largest national park in the British Isles, with an area of 3,800 kmē.

In the background you see Glenmore Forest Park, a remnant of the Caledonian Forest which surrounds beautiful Loch Morlich.
