www.sledges.co.uk is a department of Glenmore Outdoor Ltd. The business is based in GLENMORE near to AVIEMORE in the Highlands of Scotland. This web site is an extention of our retail business which was established in 1956. The idea of selling sledges online originated from our long history of selling sledges from our shop which is situated in the snowiest part of what is currently the UK. We also have had a long history of selling and renting many other winter sports products which have been transfered to online as technology has crept up on us.
We are proud not to be a corporate monster and proud to operate our business from the Highlands and can say that we are a good example of the power of universal broadband being able to allow business success in a mountainous and very rural area. We have proven that it is completely unecessary to have to operate from central London for example.
The Scottish Highlands has since 1707 been a poorer area than most of what is currently the UK and by dealing with us you are helping to support the economy of a rural community. If you deal with some big internet names you may find your money being pumped into the economy of a major connurbation, which you may not prefer.
It is a very beautiful place to live and work, the landscape and wildlife giving daily inspiration the the choice of products we offer to you the buyer. We hope at all times that owning one of our snow products will give you the inspiration to seek out the wilder parts of the world.
When you place an order we will do our very best to get the product to you as soon as is humanly possible. Please see terms and conditions. In most cases your order will go to our warehouse in the English Lake District where it will be packed and sent out to your delivery address. We have chosen to base our warehouse in the Lake District as it is 1) Central to the current UK to allow parcel deliveries to be made rapidly to all corners of the nation and Ireland,and. 2) To help promote the economy of another rural area.
