Inspiring Xmas holidays in Scotland

Why you should spend your Xmas holidays in Scotland

Xmas holidays in Scotland are ideal for families, or for groups of friends. The cost of Christmas holiday cottages or chalets in Scotland is generally fairly low per head during the winter months, but the whole group can enjoy the Xmas holiday together.

What activities will be available during our Scottish Xmas holiday?

If you’re feeling adventurous, you might feel like experiencing Scotland’s breathtaking natural beauty. Its landscapes are world-famous during the summer, when the pine forests look a particularly lush green. But winter gives an added dimension as snow envelops the Highlands.

Xmas is a fabulous time to go skiing or snowboarding. Booking now is a great way to secure deals – check out the offers at Snowsport Highland (www.snowsport-highland.com). Where prices for 3 nights dinner, bed and breakfast over the festive season (including evening entertainment and use of pools and spa) start at an amazing £245 per adult, at the Spittal of Glenshee Hotel.

What family xmas holidays in Scotland are recommended?

If you’re looking for something more leisurely paced than hurtling down a Scottish mountain, Xmas holidays in Scotland are also focused on city breaks.

Scotland’s cities cater for a large influx of visitors during the festive season. While kids (and adults!) can enjoy fairground rides, there are also street market stalls selling delicious food and  stocking fillers from all over Europe.
