This evening, my theme is skiing in Scotland. The recent harsh winter has served to highlight Scotland’s ski and board runs which extend to some 130km of pisted runs and have attracted many patrons this season. The principal ski centres are:

  • Cairngorm, close to Aviemore.
  • Glencoe in the Highlands set amongst stunning scenery.
  • Glenshee, situated between Blairgowrie and Braemar.
  • Nevis Range at Aonach Mor near to Fort William.
  • The Lecht in the eastern Cairngorms between Corgarff and Tomintoul.
  • SNO!zone, an indoor snow venue just outside Glasgow.

The following images and this video clip were taken at Nevis Range.

Elsewhere today, I have been very busy responding to tour enquiries and designing tour itineraries for both escorted tours and self-drive tours covering both Scotland and England. Similar work on the schedule for tomorrow.

I have also posted to my GlasgowAncestry blog information on Grier family history.

Weather has been fine and dry. However, a dip in temperature is noted this evening-we may even have a frost tonight.
