Highland Hogmanay

We;re toying with the idea of getting away from it all for a few days over New Years. Any suggestions for a quiet(er) yet traditional Hogmanay? Can involve a bit of skiing for the kids providing Mother Nature sees fit to share snow of course.

Well, the ski centres are Glenshee (base Braemar village), Glencoe, Aonach Mor (Fort William),The Lecht, Cairngorm (Aviemore or other nearby villages).

Difficult to tell re snow conditions.

Braemar is a lovely village with a couple of traditional hotels - you could check 'what's on.' I'm not a fan of Aviemore itself but there are plenty accommodation options outside the town itself (e.g Hilton Coylumbridge - stayed in it years ago when the kids were small and it was 'ok' ;caters a lot for families ) or even in places like Newtonmore or Kingussie(both a bit further away) or the Kincraig area.

New Year tends to get booked up quite quickly in the most popular areas.If it's a cottage you're after -which can be gorgeous then - they also tend to stick out for a week's booking at that time of year.
