It was cold just stepping out of the car high up on the road that passes by Ben Lawers in the Southern Highlands of Scotland but the scene was so impressive with ice, snow and dark snow-laden clouds, we just had to have a go. I can’t imagine how cold it was up on the tops but there were always some hardy folk up there!
I have lots of snowy pics from our holiday near Killin so you may see some more as time passes!
Thanks for looking.

  • Thank you Linda, it’s one of those that needs to be seen about 4 feet wide to make the most of it;-)

    I do love the white of that jagged mountain edge against the dark of the sky. Such a cold feel to this shot too (unsurprisingly! – lol)

  • Thank you Bev,
