By the end of the Victorian era, Scotland had become a favourite destination for summer holiday-makers. But what happened when the chill winds of winter began to blow and the tourists packed their bags and headed for home? Paul Murton travels from the icy shores of the Lake of Menteith to the cold summit of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain, to discover how Scotland was first promoted as a winter holiday spot.
