    @mikesheard That`s something I`ve often thought about only I would be using my campervan. Due to work commitments I would only be able to manage about a two week trip. The only problem being getting snowed in anywhere isn`t an option.

    We haven't had a really bad winter since 2009/2010 so perhaps we are overdue for another one!! My husband and I walk all winter and love the quiet and different colours from other times of the year and of course snow is fun too if you are equipped to deal with it. One thing to think about is that the west of the country is milder but it also gets a larger proportion of rain so perhaps somewhere like Aberdeenshire ( although it can be hit by snow) or the Moray Coast would fit the bill.
