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...

Would you like some of ours?

St. John's and vicinity
3:45 PM NST Thursday 27 December 2007
Winter storm warning for
St. John's and vicinity continued

Snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 centimetres combined with windy conditions will reduce visibilities to near zero in blowing snow on Friday.

This is a warning that dangerous winter weather conditions are expected or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.

A low pressure system currently affecting Nova Scotia will continue to track northeastward and develop into an intense winter storm by the time it arrives on Friday morning. Snow and high winds will affect most of the island beginning overnight and continuing into Friday.

Snowfall accumulations ranging between 15 and 25 centimetres can be expected for the eastern half of the island with the highest amounts approaching 30 centimetres forecast over northeastern Newfoundland. Gusty northeast winds combined with heavy snow will give reduced visibility in blowing snow. The snow is expected to change to flurries by Friday evening with the winds expected to shift to the northwest and strengthen as the low passes.

You could try this site.
I believe there is almost enough to ski on at the top of Cairngorm.
