Glen Coe at it’s Best.

17th January 2015

It was a stunning morning in Glen Coe with light winds, some sunshine and lots of fresh snow above 200 meters. What a contrast to the storms which feel like they have been raging for weeks. In some places parking was an issue as many of the lay-bys are blocked with snow. There was also some congestion with lots of people trying to get to the Glencoe Mountain ski area. Off the road, the soft snow made it look like heavy going on foot.
