There are currently five skiing resorts in Scotland - although a couple have recently gone into receivership.

Resort is perhaps not the best description. Despite attempts to market skiing in Scotland it remains pretty much the reserve of a certain sort of masocistic sportsman. The Scenery may be stunning, but the icy conditions, lack of snowfall and unbelievable wind-chill make skiing in Scotland about as much fun as cleaning the U-Bend of your toilet with your tongue.

The resorts are now trying much harder to broaden their activities by using the lifts for mountain bikers, walkers and other such summer activities.

The biggest investment in recent years has been the funicular railway from Aviemore.

Full details of both winter and summer activies can be found at the website below.
