Although not a destination often thought of for skiing in Europe; Scotland actually offers the best skiing in the United Kingdom. Surrounded by the beautiful scenery of either the Highland or Aberdeenshire, the country’s five ski centres are easily accessible from all of Scotland’s cities, and offer great sliding opportunities for both beginners and experienced skiers.
Located in the central eastern highlands the Cairngorm Mountain Range is situated to the West of Aberdeenshire and North of Perthshire and is generally regarded as the capital for Scottish skiing. Cairngotm Mountain has a reputation as one of the most beautiful places to ski the the UK. The town of Aviemore welcomes thousands of visitors each year and is the largest ski resort in Scotland.
Located to in the central western highlands Glencoe offers some of the most spectacular scenery Scotland has to offer and has featured in a number of blockbuster films including James Bond – Skyfall. Situated to the north of Loch Lomond and south of Fort William Glencoe Mountain Resort offers a fantastic alternative to the Cairngorms and generally experiences a different weather system so the conditions can be better than that of the range located to its east.
Gaelic for “Glen of Faries” and located on the edge of the Cairngorms Mountains Glenshee offers spectacular scenery of not only the Cairgorm Mountains but also of the Perthshire hills and woodlands. It offers one of the most magical skiing experiences in Scotland. The largest resort in the UK, it covers an area more than 2,000 acres extending across four mountains and three valleys and boasting 21 lifts and tows.
