It's cold, it's winter - embrace the season and head north to Scotland and try some of these outdoor activities
Up for an off-roading challenge? Rent a fat bike and conquer those snowy woodland-trails. Fat bikes are like mountain bikes but with oversized, wider tyres. Specifically designed for snowy, sandy or boggy terrain, these bikes will help you own those trails other bikes wouldn't be able to cope with.
Bothy Bikes near to Aviemore train station rent fat bikes from £16 for an adult.
