I was at a bit of a loose end today, so decided to go for a drive in western Perthshire in search of snow. I headed over to Loch Tay, taking the less-travelled south road. I soon came across a standing stone, which in fact isn’t ancient but a modern creation. I continued onwards, but soon stopped again to take a picture across the loch, as the cloud lifted off the snow-capped top of Ben Lawers. At the end of Loch Tay I passed through Killin and Crianlarich, and on to a layby just north of Tyndrum where there is a good view of Beinn Dòrain. And what a view it was today! Although the was plenty of snow on the hills, the roads were clear so I continued north beyond Bridge of Orchy, stopping at the car park above Loch Tulla, where the views down to the bridge over Water of Tulla and over to Beinn an Dòthaidh are fantastic. Back in the car I headed further north to the edge of Rannoch Moor and parked in a layby so I could go for a walk on the heathery moor, dusted with snow, before heading home.
