Winter breaks in Scotland doesn’t just have to mean staying indoors, curling up in front of a roaring log fire in a cosy city or highland hotel, sipping an excellent malt, unwinding, and reading a good book or meeting new friends. Outdoor Scotland is very much open in winter and there is an exhilarating range of winter outdoor activities and adventure sports to enjoy throughout Scotland, from ice climbing, skiing and sled rides, to superb rafting, winter hillwalking and mountaineering. Not to mention some excellent rough shooting and coarse fishing –-and all the usual great adventure and fun pursuits such as quad biking, clay pigeon shopping, archery and mountain biking. Great golf too, naturally – with the golf courses of Scotland being open all year round, and quieter too in the winter months.
All against the backdrop of Scottish scenery at its dramatic best. For many, winter is the time to see Scotland at its best when crisp mornings and clear skies add to the drama of snow and ice clad and capped hills and mountains.
