The Lecht 2090 ski centre is based 2090 feet (645m) above sea level amid the beauty of the Eastern Cairngorms. The Activity Centre is situated in the heart of Scotland’s largest National Park at the top of the pass between Tomintoul and Strathdon.


The Lecht 2090 is the smallest of the 5 ski centres in Scotland but it still packs plenty of punch. Started in 1977 there wasn’t much there before a layby big enough for 3 cars and a cattle grid.
The ability to attract and hold snow it was the ideal place; the idea was to develop an area that was more suitable for beginners. Tomintoul to Cockbridge is one of the highest main roads in the UK and the hills around rise to 2,700ft (775m). This natural playground offers exciting outdoor activities for both the summer and winter seasons and the staff make sure you have an enjoyable day out on the hills.
