Scotland late March

Has anyone got any experience of boarding Scotland in late march (26th). I have a few days off and fancy getting away.

Thanks.

March and April are usually good months for snow in Scotland due to the Spring showers that roll in. The problem with Scotland is wind. They had a lot of snow last week but the centres have been closed most days due to high winds. I personally would play it by ear and check weather reports and slope conditions on websites like winterhighland.

Look up the websites for the resorts you plan on visiting. They're usually very good with the latest weather updates, slope conditions and how many lifts they'll have running when open.

The conditions are quite good at the moment with more snow apparently on the way. But as already said, the wind can cause problems. Make sure you're properly wrapped up and be prepared to hike incase they have to close the lifts down while you're there.

Thank you. We will be going late notice anyway as the plan is to surf or snow, depends if the surf is kicking off in Kernow as to if we head north or not. Thanks for the advice guys. :-)

I've heard good things about Kernow, though I don't surf myself. Whichever place you end up will be fun, I'm sure.
