Waiting to board the ferry this morning I spotted this rather great shot. I love the virtual silhouette of the passenger gangway hoist, as it stands out from the light dusting of snow on Goat Fell. Spot the seagull camouflaged within the image!
After the beating that Scotland has endured since the start of 2015, this mornings blue skies and sunshine must have been welcomed with a huge smile from Arran Islanders north and south, and all points in between. To compliment this day, our icing on the proverbial cake arrived dramatically overnight, with a coating of snow on the major peaks. On the wall of the bridge at the top of the String road, the untouched flakes combine to measure some four or five inches in depth.
Jacqueline and Geoff moved to the beautiful Isle of Arran in 2012, and have been visiting since 1998.
