Winter gritting & snow clearance in Scotland

gritit teams scotlandThe GRITIT Scottish headquarters is based in Edinburgh, and has an extensive footprint of city, town, village and rural depots throughout Scotland.

The Scottish HQ prides itself on its constant 'excellent levels of service' delivered year in, year out, as the Google reviews of GRITIT bear witness to.

With the Scottish weather being the most snow- and ice-prone in the UK, the challenge in Scotland is to remain responsive amidst the unpredictable conditions.
