Glenshee, takes its name from the Gaelic 'Glen of the Fairies'. The ski centre straddles the Perthshire-Aberdeenshire boundary and is located at the top of one of the highest roads in the UK. Glenshee Ski Centre is the largest ski resort in Scotland and is sometimes referred to as the Scottish three valleys. It covers an area of more than 2000 acres extending across four mountains and three valleys and boasting 21 lifts and tows. Glenshee offers a choice of 36 runs comprising 40 kms of pisted snow. The longest single run, Glas Maol, extends to a fantastic 2 kms of skiing. A great area for walking as well, with many Munros in the area, made a lot easier by the fact that the road is at a height of 2000ft!
