Photo - Midlothian Snowsports Centre

Located just outside the Edinburgh Ring Road on the North facing side of the Pentland Hills, the Midlothian Snowsports Centre is an artificial ski slope with both a chair lift and drag lifts that hires ski equipment and supplies ski lessons to individuals and groups. It is run by Edinburgh District Council that keeps the costs to reasonable levels and is well controlled to be child friendly. There is a pleasant cafe on site for non-skiers.

Edinburgh and Lothians

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland but is a third of the population of Glasgow. Perversely the city has no motorway access to the South and since the local transport links are excellent the city and surrounding area can easily be accessed without a car, arriving by train or plane. The highest concentration of Scotland's major attractions are found within the city and surrounding area - Edinburgh being the top tourist destination in Britain outside of London because its attractions are mostly concentrated in a central area. For the purposes of this guide, the city centre and East Lothian are listed seperately and the Lothians are defined as mainly the areas to the North, South and West of the city.
