I was planning on going walking in the freshly-fallen snow today, but my brother was up so we ended up having a family get-together for lunch in St Andrews.
After we’d all gone our separate ways there was still a few hours of daylight left, so I headed north towards Loch Rannoch. I parked in a layby on the way into the village, and took a photo of a snowy Schiehallion rising majestically over the River Tummel.
I walked into and through the village to Loch Rannoch‘s windswept beach. Although there was no snow on the ground here, there was an icy chill in the air and the surrounding hills had snowy peaks.
I carried on round the edge of the loch to get another view of Schiehallion.
Then I walked quickly back to the car, the wind cutting right through my fleece. I drove back along to the Queen’s View on Loch Tummel to take some more photos of Schiehallion, but the cloud had come down and it had disappeared.
On the way back down from the viewing point there were a lot of birds bobbing about, including a very tame robin.
By now it was getting dark and the temperature was dropping, so I was glad to get back in the car, turn the heater up and head for home.
