    good snow at the Cairngorns. Go to the furnicular and stay the weekend there. No worries. Also the other possibity is The Lecht. good snow and stay on the level car park again http://www.winterhighland.info/

    Could always start at the Cairngorns and try them all.


    Enjoy,,, We will be packing for Les Saisies:thumb::thumb: otherwise we would of come

    Glenshee

    HI ALL :Smile:
    Just got back from 4 days in scotland we went to Glenshee our first time there just me and my wife no kids .We spent 3 nights in the car park which was ok very cold at night but very warm in the van .Got there thursday night at 8 and parked up and forgot everthing about camping at night at -6 or 8:Doh: I have 2 waste tanks on my van. 2 outlets on waste tanks were frozen , I found i had pipe going to the waste tank out side the van on the under side i did not park level cos off snow so waste water in the pipe froze will have to sort that.But apart from that the van worked well .
    Now for the skiing it was great 2nd day was best (saturday) blue sky all day and all runs open skied ever run i think staff were very good on the lifts looked after us very well .There were about 6 or 7 motorhomes in the car park sorry we did take our dog with us we have a 2 year german shepard he had a great time in the snow and allways feel safer with him in the van at night time will put some pics on larter .
