Known in ancient times as the glen of the fairies, Glen Shee is a prominent glen in Perthshire, Scotland. At its head is the so-called Spittal of Glenshee, a small village that is a hub for many visitors. The area is steeped in history, and the 16th century Dalnaglar Castle is a must see for visitors. It is well known for its ski centre – the largest in the country. The centre covers over 2000 acres and its longest run, Glas Maol, covers 2 kilometres. A variety of beverages and food is available in its café and you’ll find all the skiing and snowboarding equipment you might need to hire including boots, snowboards, skis and helmets. There is also a ski school for you to learn the ropes. Glenshee is part of the Cairngorms National Park, also the largest of its kind. Double the area of the Lake District, the park is a paradise for those who love outdoor activities, full of mountains, woodland paths, lochs and rivers. There are also multiple distilleries where you can sample Scotland’s national drink. You’ll never be stuck for something to do in the area. If skiing’s not your thing, Glenshee’s nine hole golf course dates to 1922 and was designed by some of the prominent people of the time.
