You don’t have to wait for warmer weather to enjoy the outdoors. There is something truly magical about winter, the fresh start of a new year, the cold crisp air that touches your face as soon as you head out. And, of course, the dazzling snow that transforms real life in to an enchanting fairytale.
Plus, the best way to keep life magical is to try different things and spice up your days. The best thing about that – you don’t have to go abroad; you can enjoy some fantastic snowcation spots here in Scotland.
We recommend a day trip to Cairngorm Mountain Resort if you’re staying with us – it’s situated about an hour and a half away. There are so many excellent ski centres here, which we often forget are right on our doorsteps.
There is nothing better than taking a trip to Cairngorm Mountain and taking in the breathtaking views of the UK’s largest national park.In addition to 12 lifts and 32 runs, there are two mountain cafés (including the highest in the UK), a shop, a mountain garden, and extensive parking.
At the centre and nearby, you can find an array of snowsports schools, equipment hirers, instructors and other family activities that everyone will enjoy.
The best way to recharge after a full day of winter activities in the mountains is by staying in one of our cosy Cairngorm Bothies. A unique positioning allows each bothy to offer guests an unobstructed view of the forest so that they can enjoy its flora and fauna, giving you the perfect opportunity to become one with nature and fully relax.
This wilderness playground offers unique experiences such as cycling, fishing, visiting distilleries and castles nearby, as well as horse riding. There truly is so much to take your mind off of your daily life and inspire you to see the beauty of winter. So, what are you waiting for?
