Situated on the A93, Britains highest main road at the Cairnwall Pass, the Gelnshee ski area straddles eitherside of the road and forms the largest ski area in Scotland. There are over 40kms of marked runs linked by 21 lifts - 3 chairlifts, 3 T bars, 14 poma tows and a single rope tow.

The closest town to Glenshee is Braemar just 15 minutes away to the north in Royal Deeside - very close to Balmoral the Royal Family's summer residence. Aberdeen is approxiamately 2 hours from Glenshee while Perth to the south of Glenshee is just over 1 hour from the ski area. It is also possible to combine a ski and city break staying in Edinburgh though the drive up from Edinburgh can take between 2 and 3 hours depending on road conditions.

The Skiing

The ski area straddles the Cairnwell Pass. From the carpark you either head east towards Glas Maol or west uptowards Cairnwell and Carn Aosda.

to warm up head east first, up sunnyside - there are two drag tows and a chairlift. From the top of Sunny side bare right down a gentle green run which opens up the Meall Oohar lift, or take the Beag drag to access Caenochain drag. There arre a choice of red runs and the home blue run back down or carry on heading over in to Coirie Fionn and jump on the Glas Maol drag. From the top of Glas Moel West Wall is one of 2 black runs while the Glas Moal red to the left is the longest single piste in Scotland.

Heading back towards the carpark the Meall Odhar cafe provides a welcome respite for a coffee and cake! 


Heading to the West up the Cairnwell chairlift Glenshee's secon black run 'The Tiger' beckons! Steep and bumpy conquering The Tiger is a real achievement. The alternative way down is a the red Thunderbowl! Slide over to the right and the Cairnwell T bar opens up Bunny's a crusing green run towards Butchart's Coirie. 3 drags here open up Red blue and green runs back down to the top of Baddoch chairlift and the small welcoming cafe!
