Ski Scotland

I’m on my way home from a week in Scotland visiting my partners family. We took the opportunity to squeeze in some skiing as they live so close to the Cairngorms. We made a few stops on the way and spent a night at the MacDonald Manchester which was very nice but we had only booked a room and found out the next morning that the breakfast was £19.85 per person which I think is a little pricey for a fry up.

Our second stop was at the Craigvrack Hotel in Pitlochry and a room with breakfast was £65. It was a lovely little place and reminded me of the ski towns in France. And the food we had at The Old Mill Inn was delicious.

Our first attempt at skiing was a non-starter as the road into Glenshee was closed due to snow but we managed to get through yesterday and enjoyed a good day skiing. Now I have to say the slopes are not as high as the Alps but snow is snow and it’s a good way to find your ski legs before your holiday. I put my new Dare2be ski gear that I had for Christmas to the test and it fared very well. I have gone for black and white this time and have put links to their website below. Although, I did fall off the poma lift and well and truly bent one of my ski poles. So, of course, I had to buy a new set in black and white to match my outfit. They were very reasonably priced at £25 for Salomon.
