Ski, Slay, Stay: Glenshee Ski Centre and Your Cosy Hideaways

Hey snow-loving wanderers! If your idea of bliss involves carving through pristine powder and cosying up by the fire with a hot cocoa, Glenshee Ski Centre is calling your name. And guess what? We’ve got the inside scoop on the ultimate ski escapade, complete with two dreamy hideaways – Holly Tree Lodge and Granite Cottage. Buckle up (or should I say, strap in), because we’re about to embark on a snowy adventure in the heart of Scotland!

1. Glenshee Ski Centre: The Winter Wonderland You’ve Been Craving: Nestled in the Cairngorms National Park, Glenshee Ski Centre is a snow lover’s paradise. With over 20 runs catering to all skill levels, it’s the perfect spot to unleash your inner snow ninja or polish those existing skills. From gentle slopes for beginners to adrenaline-pumping black runs, Glenshee’s got it all. And the panoramic views? Prepare to have your breath taken away.

The nearby town of Blairgowrie offers a range of cafes and restaurants to satiate you, as well as numerous attractions and things to do. Read our blog to read all about holidaying in Perthshire and why you should choose holiday lets over hotels!

2. Meet Your Cosy Retreats: Holly Tree Lodge and Granite Cottage: Now, let’s talk about where you’ll be kicking off those ski boots. Holly Tree Lodge and Granite Cottage, managed by us here at The Property Girls, are the epitome of snug retreats. Picture this: after a day of conquering the slopes, you’ll return to a crackling fireplace, plush sofas, and all the creature comforts you could wish for. Holly Tree Lodge, surrounded by woodland charm, and Granite Cottage, a stone’s throw from the action, are your sanctuaries in the snow-covered wilderness.

Holly Tree Lodge is the perfect spot for group ski trips. Sleeping up to eleven guests, and with a private on site sauna, there truly is nothing else quite like it. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped and there is a large garden area on the banks of the Black Water River, perfect for the pooches to explore.

We’d recommend Granite Cottage to families with children or couples that are looking for a traditional Scottish stay in an idyllic location. The garden is spacious and enclosed and the bedrooms are tasteful and extremely comfortable, offering you the perfect nights sleep.

3. Après-Ski Bliss: What’s a day on the slopes without a bit of après-ski revelry? Glenshee’s got you covered with its cosy cafes and welcoming pubs. Unwind with a hearty meal at the Tee@TheShee cafe, or share tales of your ski conquests over a pint at the Cairnwell Café. The best part? Your charming hideaway is just a stone’s throw away, ensuring you can fully indulge in the après-ski spirit.

4. The Property Girls: Your Winter Wonderland Guides: Just like in Blairgowrie, The Property Girls have their fingers on the pulse of Glenshee. Need tips on the best ski routes or the cosiest places to thaw out after a day in the snow? They’ve got you covered. Plus, with Holly Tree Lodge and Granite Cottage under their wing, you’re not just booking a place to stay; you’re securing a winter wonderland experience curated by locals who know the ins and outs of Glenshee.

5. Ski Freedom: The beauty of staying at Holly Tree Lodge or Granite Cottage is the freedom to set your own ski agenda. Hit the slopes at dawn or take a leisurely morning and start your adventure later. With the flexibility of a holiday let, the snow-covered world is your oyster.

So, fellow snow enthusiasts, gear up for the ski escapade of a lifetime. Glenshee Ski Centre awaits, and with Holly Tree Lodge or Granite Cottage as your base, you’re in for a winter wonderland retreat that combines adventure with snug serenity. Happy skiing and even happier stays! ❄️🏂
