Angus - the perfect base for skiing in Scotland

Snow BoardingWhat could possibly be better than skiing in Scotland against the backdrop of Scotland's dramatic Cairngorm mountains?


Although not quite in Angus, nearby Glenshee - which offers the UK's most extensive skiing and snowboarding facilities - covers 2000 acres and boasts 20 lifts and 36 runs.


Glenshee Ski Centre has an amazing diversity of natural terrain which makes it suitable for all standards of skiers and snowboarders - beginners and experts alike.


The centre flanks the highest public road in Scotland which climbs up the Devil's Elbow and through the Cairnwell Pass.  The route offers stunning views of the Angus, Perthshire and - once over the summit - Aberdeenshire countryside.  It is these views that make this area so popular as a hillwalking destination throughout the year.


A trip skiing in Scotland is made all the better by a wide range of apr├ęs-ski activities. Accommodation can be found in the village of Glenisla and the Angus town of Kirriemuir - which is less than an hour's drive from the slopes.
