If you have a Scottish winter break planned you have something very special to look forward to! There is something quite magical about the highlands of Scotland in winter. Perhaps it is the spectacular scenery, or maybe it’s the thought of curling up by a roaring log fire. Whatever you plan to do on your Scottish winter break, our essential packing guide will help you prepare.
A packing guide for your Scottish Winter Break:
Your Winter Woollies
December, January and February are generally the coldest months in beautiful Scotland. The average maximum temperature is usually around 5°C. You may very well enjoy some snow too! So, it really goes without saying that you will definitely need to pack your winter woollies. We’re talking about everything from base layers (long johns and thermals) to outerwear. That way you’ll still be able to enjoy walking and hiking in the highlands.
That said, if you’re staying at beautiful Bearnock you can rest assured that once you return to the house from your adventures, you’ll be perfectly toasty.
If you’re out and about and feeling a little nippy, a wee dram is a perfect way to defrost. If you need to fill your hipflask with something special a visit to Glen Ord is a must.
No, we’ve not gone mad! If you’re hitting the ski slopes of Aviemore sunscreen and lip balm are absolute essentials.
Or perhaps you’ll rely on your smartphone. Whichever device you decide to use, one thing is for sure, memories will be made on your Scottish winter break, which we know you’ll want to preserve forever!
A Party Frock
You might spend your days enjoying the great outdoors, and everything the highlands of Scotland have to offer. But in the evenings at Bearnock we think you’ll want to dine in style! Our spacious panelled dining room can seat twenty-two. So, it’s worth channelling your inner Aristocrat and dressing for dinner!
Your Favourite Read
There’s something perfectly peaceful about curling up in front of a roaring log fire with your favourite book. So, don’t forget to pack your reading material for your Scottish winter break.
