This is going to be my first winter in Scotland. Where I come from, Malta, we never get any snow or frost. I'm looking forward to playing around in the snow. Anything in particular I should watch out for?
Cross county skiiing, particularly "skate skiing" is a gas. Winter biking can be fun, too, but it's way better on ice or packed snow (with studs) than in snow. I am also partial to snow shoeing - you can go places in winter that you would never be able access in warm weather. Embrace the cold and enjoy!!! Good luck.
