The transformation of Aviemore from a village on the edge of the Cairngorm mountains to a popular tourist town and ski resort began with the arrival of Highland Railway in 1863. The current railway buildings, including beautiful canopies and footbridge, were built in 1898, although passengers would be forgiven for looking past the man-made structures to the spectacular hills and mountains that surround the town and are visible from the platforms. Most visitors come to Aviemore to explore this stunning landscape, and numerous activities are available, from hiking and mountain biking in the summer to skiing and snowboarding in the winter. Other attractions include nearby Glenmore, with the UK's only wild reindeer herd, and the Cairngorm Mountain funicular railway. As well as services to Inverness and Edinburgh, Aviemore is on the Caledonian Sleeper line that runs between Inverness and London Euston, and is the terminus of the Strathspey Heritage Railway.
