Cold Weather but a very Warm Welcome
I operate tours in Scotland throughout the year. During the winter months Scottish weather is very unpredictable and many historic buildings and other attractions close due to the few visitor numbers in their area. However, as our photos of winter tours show, the scenery can be stunning during the winter months.
Scotland has several winter sports areas offering skiing and snowboarding but again, the scope for participation in these sports will always be dictated by the weather. The photos below show the Wijaya family from the city of Jambi on the Island of Sumatra, experiencing snow for the first time at the Glenshee winter sports centre.
The New Year holiday period is very big in Scotland and forward planning with early reservations is strongly recommended.
Edinburgh’s New Year street party at midnight, is beamed across the world and events relating to “Edinburgh’s Hogmanay” start just after Christmas.
In the Shetland Islands, late January sees the ‘Up Helly Aa’ festival where the Shetland’s ancient Viking history is celebrated.
