Lowther Hills is a small, family-friendly ski centre nested between Scotland's two highest villages, Wanlockhead and Leadhills, which boast Scotland's oldest Curling and Skiing heritage. It's the only ski centre in the south of Scotland and the nearest to the cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dumfries, all just one hour's drive to the slopes. The centre has a separate and safe area for absolute beginners and children. Most of the ski pistes are gentle and rolling blues which suit beginners and intermediates best. Cross Country skiers can tour the 3km loop on the Lowther Hill - Green Lowther plateau at 700 metres with impressive views over half of the south of Scotland and as far as the Isle of Arran, Ben Lomond, the Lake District and the Isle of Man on a clear day. After a day on the slopes, enjoy a different kind of après-ski at the local, family-friendly pubs: Hopetoun Arms Hotel in Leadhills and Wanlockhead Inn in Wanlockhead, both of which serve warm meals.
