aye, i was being a bit harsh, it's been gradually getting better over the last decade to the point where I like going up for the weekend rather than being dragged kicking and screaming! My mate bought an apartment there about 10 years ago and we all laughed at him...guess who is laughing now
You're right though, Aviemore is hard to beat in terms of location for mountain sports, but remember is actually Lochaber which is the outdoor capital of the UK, not Ft Bill. it's just Ft Bill using the OC marketing to its advantage.
When you take Lochaber as a whole, it's difficult for Aviemore to beat it, but I 100% agree with you on Ft Bill v Aviemore.
