With snow dusting the mountains and red deer roaming free, you can really catch some incredible sights. If your preference is to avoid the crowds and parties, you can find yourself completely alone for days all over Scotland.
Scottish are famous for being ‘stingy’ with their money but let’s face it, everyone loves a bargain!

Scotland as a country is thousands of years old and traditions have been passed down generation after generation. Many of these traditions are celebrated in the festive period, making Scotland one of the go-to places over Christmas and New year.
With 5 ski resorts to choose from, winter sports enthusiasts often claim the remote and quiet pistes are Scotland’s best kept secret. Each resort offers its own attractions and limitless opportunities for all levels and abilities. Getting to the slopes in your campervan couldn’t be easier with winter tyres to get through snow and diesel heating systems to keep you sung. Often the resorts will offer camping facilities in their carpark with electric hook-ups or you can go off grid for up to 3 days with our campervans. This provides you with easy access to the slopes, secluded accommodation and the most glorious views to wake up to in the morning. Check out our Winter Sports in Scotland Blog for more information.
