The colder months don’t have to be all grey and dull. We should enjoy ourselves all year round, whatever the weather. You might be used to waiting to go on a holiday somewhere abroad to enjoy the sun, but this might not be an easy task with the pandemic. Even though restrictions are easing up, it can be a hassle to prepare for a trip abroad. And you don’t have to! Scotland offers unique snowcation spots, perfect for a winter adventure.
Glencoe Mountain was established in 1956 and is Scotland’s oldest snowsports centre. It is one of the best ski centres in the country for experienced skiers and snowboarders. You can enjoy panoramic views of the Meall a’Bhuiridh Massif from here, as well as the steepest black run in the United Kingdom. Another snowcation spot nearby is Aonach Mor – the UK’s eighth highest mountain. It’s located at the heart of Nevis Range, near Fort William. Visit this centre to experience Britain’s only mountain gondola, which has unsurpassed views over Lochaber from 650 metres above sea level.
After hitting the slopes, what better way to end the day other than getting a drink at The Bothy Bar to warm you up? The perfect finishing touch to your winter adventure is cosying up in our cabins, getting ready for a night of relaxation.
It all sounds fantastic, doesn’t it? Stop waiting for warm weather to have fun; start planning your winter adventure now and book your stay with us.
