The camera obscura at CairnGorm Mountain is open during the summer months with free entry and is a key feature of the mountain arts project, ‘Reading a Landscape’. It stands at 635m above sea level in its own distinctive black timber building at the top of the Mountain Garden close by the funicular railway track, a few metres’ walk from the base station.

Since 2004 the Cairngorm Mountain Trust has worked with partners to develop an artist-led initiative that would enhance visitors’ understanding of the mountain landscape. Now ‘The Dark Room’ camera obscura rotates slowly projecting a 360⁰ real-time view of the surrounding landscape onto a table before your eyes.
