Conference facilities

The Lecht Centre situated in the very heart of Scotland’s largest national Park, boasts a location that is truly unique.   Perched on a mountain top between Tomintoul and Strathdon this centre is an ideal place for those wanting to get away from it all.

The solitary but contemporary building, a European styled lodge, functions as a ski centre in the winter months.   Throughout the rest of the year the building is available for leisure activities, a range of corporate meetings, weddings and functions.

Built on three levels, accessed by stairs and lift, the Lecht offers numerous opportunities for different types of usage.   The Lecht has a bar and restaurant facilities, break out areas and two large areas for multi purpose use.

With over 32 years of working in the ski centre business the Lecht engineering staff have diversified their talents, from just building our own ski lifts, buildings, ski slopes, snow making systems etc into many and various areas.

The latest contract is to supply heated boot racks to one of the ski resorts in Iceland.   These racks are based on our own system of giving the customer a warm dry boot first thing every morning.

Other contracts include:
Installing, with the aid of a specially designed ski lift system, the feeding system for the Cheetahs at Fota Wild Life Park, Ireland.   This required the cheetahs having to chase after their food, hung on to the lift, at 50 mph and then for the keepers to be able to be reverse or change direction to confuse the cheetahs.    Feeding time is the highlight at Fota Park.
