Richard, there was a brief dusting here a few weeks ago. The ground was pretty wet here and it quickly melted. Less than an hour from here they had an inch or two - but it had all gone by the following morning.
I believe Nevis range (fort william) had some snow yesterday but not enough for skiing and that there is patchy snow on Glencoe - but no complete runs. I was told Cairngorm was open Christmas Eve (very limited skiing) and is expecting more snow today/tomorrow. They have snowmaking capabilities too if conditions allow.
However for garunteed snow in Scotland at the moment probably your only real prospect is the Braehead indoor snowdome...
