Ski or snow-board within hour an hour of Muckrach Lodge. The hotel is situated right in between two fabulous ski resorts in the Cairngorms National Park; Cairngorm mountain is 20 miles from the hotel and the Lecht is 23 miles away. Both have great ski and snowboard facilities for all levels; Cairngorm mountain is the highest and holds the snow well throughout the season with a lot of variety, attracting some of the best skiers and snowboarders and the Lecht is particularly good for families and beginners, offering excellent nursery slopes. In the summer months, both resorts offer alternative activities, such as downhill mountain biking for the thrill seekers amongst us. If you prefer to enjoy the breath-taking views and crisp mountain air, then the Cairngorm mountain’s funicular railway takes you up to 3500 feet in 20 minutes. Accessible to all, the viewing platform offers panoramic views of the Cairngorm National Park. Guided walks and bike rides are available to take you onto the mountain, out of snow season.
