Skiing in the Highlands

The five ski centres in the Scottish Highlands - Glencoe, Nevis Range, Lecht, Glenshee and CairnGorm are doing bumper business due to the very snowy conditions during January and into February. It snowed overnight even at lower levels and it is still snowing now.
Check out the Winterhighland site for more detailed info on the ski centres.

CairnGorm near Aviemore is always a good day trip with plenty to see and do. Take an exciting journey on the funicular railway to the top.

Watch the fun on the slopes and check out the restaurants and shops.

Take the trip back down on the funicular to the car park.

February snow scenes.

The month of February started with constant snow showers and very cold temperatures. The snow is still laying here in Upper Foyers although it has disappeared in villages nearer Loch Ness .. maybe being nearer the water is warmer. Temperatures are due to rise this coming week so hopefully the worst is all behind us and we can look forward to Spring.
