Scottish Government to Start Work on The Funicular

Highlands and Islands Labour MSP Rhoda Grant is backing the Scottish Government’s decision to reinstate the funicular.

She said:

“I agree that the move is good for the local economy, especially after the pandemic’s drastic effect on local businesses, including those in the hospitality and tourism industry.

“Although this is light at the end of the tunnel for next winter, there are tough times ahead for everyone in Badenoch and Strathspey in the coming year.

“However, there are people in the community with creative and innovative ideas who have been pushing for a role in Cairngorm’s development and I still believe they should be allowed to step in with a project which would fill the gap between work starting on the funicular and its completion.”
