Well, there is still snow lying in the shadier parts of the forest.

It isn’t all that unusual to have lying snow in Scotland at Easter, but I still think it’s nice to see.  In my opinion the Scottish hills eclipse even the Alps for beauty when partially clad in snow yet basking under Spring sunshine.  And off piste skiing at this time of year, to the sound of the grouse and ptarmigan in the heather, is an experience not to be missed.

The Spring is welcome, but it is worth reflecting that the winter here does give us some pleasures too.
