Proudly entitled ‘the original and best’, Glencoe is Scotland’s oldest resort at the grand old age of 56. With slightly quieter pistes than other Scottish resorts and close proximity to Glasgow, Glencoe is quickly becoming a favourite with British riders looking for a local shred. Hit the country’s steepest black, Fly Paper, for a thigh-burning 800m descent down to the lift.
