Winter Breaks

Embrace the great outdoors this winter

Why not plan a winter break in Scotland this year and get to know the real Scotland from a local holiday cottage?

Scotland becomes a playground during the winter months, with skiiers, snowboarders and climbers heading for the snow-cloaked hills. Whether you want to learn to ski or enjoy some winter walking, Scotland has a whole host of outdoor activities for different ages and abilities.

Enjoy the independence of having your own base to return to after a day’s skiing, walking or climbing, with a self-catering home from home.  Whether you want to walk, climb, snowboard or simply warm yourself with a whisky by the fire, winter is a magical time to visit Scotland.
