Lecht 2090 is based 2090 feet (645m) above sea level amid the beauty of the Eastern Cairngorms. The Lecht Activity Centre is situated in the heart of Scotland’s largest National Park at the top of the pass between Tomintoul and Strathdon.

The previously infamous road between Tomintoul and Cockbridge is one of the highest main roads in the UK and the hills around rise up to 2,700ft (775m). This natural playground offers exciting outdoor activities for both the summer and winter seasons and the local staff are keen to make sure you have an enjoyable day out on the hills.

As well as having a meal or a coffee in the day lodge it can be hired for functions, such as meeting, conferences and is also a great place to hold your wedding.

Winter at the Lecht

Winter activities are ideal for all levels of skiers and snowboarders but especially good for beginners and intermediates. A total 12 different lifts, including a 3 person chairlift and a magic carpet travelator which get novices going on day one.  Tubing is available depending on the conditions, (descend the slope out of control in a large tyre).   All equipment and clothing can be hired on site, equipment can be booked on line, the ski school can develop your skills from basic to racers and all in a safe environment close to the beautiful purpose built day lodge, which houses cafe, bar, ticket office, shop, ski hire, toilets all under one roof.  

Summer at the Lecht

Summer Activities include 2 downhill mountain trails for Mountain Bikes with a skills park as well as Deval carts, (buggies to come down the hill with just a brake) and both activities use the 3 man chairlift for access.  

To make it easy you hook your bike onto the chairlift which takes you to the start of the downhill tracks. Deval karts have no engine, again they are taken to the top on the chairlift and are then driven down a track.
