There was LOTS of snow in Scotland in February of 2009, so we took advantage of it for one weekend at least, and had a nice cross-country ski up Glen Banchor, just North of Newtonmore on the Perth to Inverness road/railway line.  We started out with the idea of going up Glen Tilt near Blair Atholl, but there wasn't actually enough snow around there, so we just stayed on the train as we'd heard that there was lots of snow in the Cairngorm area.  Newtonmore is 2 stops short of Aviemore which, we decided, would be too full of tourists and DOWNHILL skiers.  To avoid that strange yo-yo race we decided to stop at Newtonmore instead.  We weren't disappointed!

It was a gorgeous, clear, sunny day with mostly light, powdery snow!
