Holiday Travel Guide

Lecht Ski Resort featuring snow and a gondola

Explore 20 different runs and a terrain park at this expansive ski resort set amid the rugged beauty of the Eastern Cairngorms in Scotland’s largest national park.

Spend some time exploring the ski slopes crisscrossing Scotland’s stunning hills at the Lecht Ski Resort, located in the heart of Cairngorms National Park. Ski or snowboard the diversity of runs and refine your skills on the groomed slopes. The resort is nestled into a valley crossed by a scenic mountain road. The resort has a small and charming day lodge, ski rental facilities and a cozy café, so you can relax and enjoy the friendly atmosphere.

Begin your day on the slopes at the Lecht Centre, a beautifully designed day lodge that contains the ticket office, rental area and gear shop, as well as a café and bar facilities. Get fitted with rental ski or snowboard gear or test some of the facility’s new lines of equipment.

The Lecht has a network of more than 10 surface lifts and one chairlift. Explore the resort’s slopes, which are mostly intermediate runs. Beginners and those who want to work on their technique can take private or group lessons, offered daily by the Lecht Ski School.

Spend the day carving tracks on the slopes and exploring the mountain ridges, enjoying views of the beautiful surrounding Cairngorms mountain range. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers can check out the ramps, kickers and rails in the terrain park. Take a break back at the base village and enjoy a hot cup of coffee at the Lecht Centre’s café.

The Lecht Ski Resort is located on the magnificent mountain route that links Tomintoul to Strathdon. It is a 75-minute drive from Inverness and a 90-minute drive from Aberdeen. The nearest train station is at Aviemore, a 50-minute drive away. Public transportation access to the Lecht is limited, with shuttle buses operating from Aberdeen on snowy days. There are no accommodations on the mountain. Find lodging in nearby villages offering cottages and hotel rooms. The resort’s ski season usually runs between December and late March.
