Glorious sunshine yesterday on the west coast but bitterly cold. Boats in the marina at Dunstaffnage – viewed from the car park at Poppies after a delicious lunch. Then a drive up the coast to Glencoe. In the shelter, the sea was mirror calm and the reflections perfect. The landscape wore a golden- brown glow in the afternoon sunshine. The moon added drama to the Pap of Glencoe in the late afternoon glow as the sun was setting.
All the laybys through Glencoe, and out on to Rannoch Moor, were packed with cars and mini buses and all the occupants were all out taking photos. We were amazed at the number of people, certainly far more than we would normally expect to see at this time of year.
Today everything is monochrome – except for the red gates and beech hedge. Snowing steadily. Our first white stuff this year.
