A ski resort split between two counties
The Lecht is a ski resort on the A939 between Cockbridge and Tomintoul. It has been in operation since the 1970s, and as many people are aware, this road is one of the first to be closed by snow.
It sits right on the border with Moray and Aberdeenshire, splitting the site into two counties.
The A939 is the highest A-road in the UK and as such is regularly affected by snow, which of course makes for good skiing weather!
There are several tows and ski lifts.
