Been to the Lecht many times and always had a hoot.
The owners are a lovely family; very friendly and helpful.
Thankfully it is still family owned so they are not just in the game to make fast cash, unlike natural retreats aka 'the gorm'.
A much smaller resort than 'the gorm', but cheaper and not as busy which means more runs and is also hidden from the wind that closed Cairngorm every other day.
Best food in any resort in Scotland; well priced unlike the robbing fools at Cairngorm who are only interested in profits.
Being over 1000ft below 'the gorm' height, they do suffer from lack of snow at times and have to make do with what they get.
