Snow for the kids??


We were thinking of taking a break in Scotland and thought it would be nice to maybe give the kids an experience of "real snow". Just building snowmen etc, not actually skiing (kids are 2 & 4)

We were thinking February some time, would we find snow anywhere but on top of the mountains?

Where would you recommendand any SC accomodation recommendations?

It has remained cold here and the snow on the hills is still there even here in Perthshire but it is quite high up.

The Aviemore area might be a good option for you as the Cairngorm ski area still seems to have snow.

Copy this link in to your browser and it will give you up to date conditions.


that site will also give you accommodation options too.

Just come back from the Highlands this weekend.There is plenty of snow around ski resorts/mountains, but because you have children at a young age,Avimore is your best bet for snow in Febuary with kids wanting to build snowmen and play in the forest.Lots of nice walks also around Avimore forestry.I dont know any SC accomodation in Avimore,sorry.

There is a tourist information centre in Avimore,try contacting them for advice.

Thanks for your help, I will look round the Aviemore area for somewhere to stay.
