    Any Scotland experts out there?

    I want to book a holiday cottage in Scotland for the middle of January 2009. We want the whole works: on the shore of a loch, majestic glen views and....SNOW!! I LOVE snow and haven't seen the white stuff for ages! I know weather can't be guaranteed, but where would we have the best chance of snow that time of year? I'd prefer not to go too far north, we went to the Isle of Skye a few years back and although stunning it was a bit of a trek.

    The higher north you go, the better the chance of coming across snow.

    Best chance of snow is usually the Cairngorms where places like Aviemore are, but that's almost on a par with Skye, not too familiar with the area myself to be honest.

    You fancy St. Andrews? kingsbarnsholidays.co.uk/ I stayed there earlier this year. beautiful

    Beautiful cottage, sadly not on the edge of a loch though (I don't want much do I?). Also not high enough I suspect to have a decent chance of snow.

    If you don't want to go too far north I'd try Loch Lomond with Ben Lomond in the background. Dunno about cottage but Google might get what you want

    We went to Loch Lomond a few years ago (in the autumn) and it was stunning, I'd love to go back, not sure if there would be snow though, we might have to go higher?

    Looks beautiful Mecoconuts (love your avatar btw). I want to stay in that Castle lodge!

    Try Ullapool. There are nice wee cottages right on the beach about 3 miles on the main road North of there. I don`t remember the name but i`m sure you can check out the bay and google it. Acheltibui is also a great place with stunning scenery. It`s a good drive North but worth it.
    Very scenic. Snows at some time of the week , in winter, but it`s a hostile environment.
    Are you man enough????
