I met my daughter and granddaughter here for a week day lunch - first and last time for me I'm afraid! We decided to have jacket potatoes for the adults and a filled croissant for the little one. We waited a good 15 minutes for the food and when mine arrived it had the wrong filling. The waitress took it... More

No water, no services, no cafe and bad management. Midlothian really need to get a grip and sort this world class attraction out. It's a one out of ten at best

Booked a 2 hour private advanced snowboard lesson on Sunday 13th November under the instruction of Barry. The slope is the longest dry slope in Europe apparently and although slower than snow (nature of the beast) it is very good. It has poma's and chairs and 2 dry slopes along with a tubing bit, cafe and changing facilities (board and... More

My son had his 1st 3hr ski lesson today under the careful instruction of Steve. My son is undoubtedly a sportsman but NEVER wore skis until today and this truly took him out of his comfort zone.

Obviously not as good as real snow but good to learn and fun to still get the adrenaline of skiing. As a decent skiier its leaves a bit to desire. But u can brush up on skills and still enjoy. As a snowboarder its much harder to turn and get the grip u would on snow so feels harder

We stumbled on this place on a drive home from a day in Edinburgh. Absolutely knackered we decided to check it out and add it to our to-do list, however we couldn't resist getting on the slopes then and there! It was a bit cold so wrap up warm but the quality of the skiing for artificial slopes was excellent... More

Skiing is very fun but it can be sore if you fall and remember to bring the right clothing and socks if you don't you can get marks and possibly blisters (as I did) over the bottom of your legs if you bring the wrong socks.
