Scotland has 5 ski areas; Glencoe and Nevis Range in the Western Highlands, Cairngorm near Aviemore which is pretty much in the central, Glenshee and The Lecht in the Eastern Highlands.

On a good day skiing in Scotland can rival the Alps – there are pisted runs for all abilities and some great off piste areas. But be prepared and be flexible. There is no accommodation by any of the ski areas so in reality you have to use a car to access the ski areas. As such we recommend that you stay somewhere central so you can check the weather forecast and then decide which area to go an ski on that particular day. The weather and resort conditions are updated every frew hours at www.snow-forecast.com. Perth for example is about as central as it gets to stay - just over 1 hour from Glenshee, 2 hours from Cairngorm, The Lecht and Glencoe and 2 ½ to Nevis Range.
