CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Cairn Gorm  - sign, road, trees

Start Cairn Gorm climb

The climb begins just east of Loch Morlich in the Scottish Highlands.  Rarely reaching double digit grades this 5.5 kilometer climb is steepest through its one giant hairpin that runs up to 15% for 100 meters. Unfortunately, the views were obscured by clouds and rain the day in late September, 2018 that we made the climb. Do bring 2£ to park.

Finish at the ski resort

 

Steepest kilometer begins at km 1.6 (10.4%)

The climb ends at Cairngorm Mountain which is billed as “One of Scotland's Top 10 Visitor Attractions and home to the UK's highest Funicular Railway.”  https://www.cairngormmountain.org/  There is also a Cairngorm Cycling Club.
