If you’re still struggling to decide how to spend this fast-approaching New Year, look no further. We decided to...
Kick start your New Year’s fitness regime by booking a skiing holiday in Scotland. Forget the Alps and the Rockies and choose one of the many excellent Scottish ski resorts for your winter break. Make the most of the lower prices at this time of the year and book a Scottish holiday cottage to relax in after a hard day’s skiing. A winter holiday to Scotland is also a great choice if you’re struggling for ideas for Christmas presents for the person who ‘has it all’!
When it comes to choosing a great ski resort, the answer is right under your nose. From Glencoe, to the Nevis Range and the Cairngorms National Park, Scotland is home to a number of great ski centres which operate between December and April. Escape for a long weekend to Scotland as soon as the first snows have fallen and try your hand at this exhilarating winter sport. Experienced skiers will also find plenty more challenging runs to tackle across the Cairngorms making this a great location for all abilities. If you’d rather snowboard, sledge or climb, you’ll also find plenty to keep you entertained in this part of Scotland.
Imagine coming home after an exhausting day on the slopes to a cosy cottage with a roaring fire; absolute heaven! What could be more welcoming after a day in the snow than a bubbling hot tub in your Scottish holiday cottage? There’s also no better way to ease the aching muscles of a first-time skier. Perhaps you’ll choose a luxurious log cabin to recreate the Alpine mood or a more contemporary property to enjoy all the benefits of a five star property?
Finding the perfect property isn’t just about the features on your property wish list; it pays to think about what you’ll get up to on your skiing holiday in Scotland. Will you spend the whole time skiing or would you like to explore the local towns? Aviemore is a particular highlight for those craving the traditional après-ski entertainment or travelling with the whole family. What about a day trip to the ‘Granite City’ of Aberdeen to discover its rich maritime heritage and enjoy great shopping and an impressive range of eateries? Will you need space to store your skis and outdoor gear or will you hire it when you arrive? If you’re taking to the snow for the first time, buying all the necessary gear can be expensive but you’ll find plenty of hire shops across the ski resorts in Scotland. Decisions, decisions, decisions! If that all seems too much to think about, why not give one of our expert reservations team a call to help you pick that perfect cottage for your skiing holiday in Scotland?
