Your Favourite 'Snowment' This Winter!

VisitScotlandLiamVisitScotlandLiam Member, Administrator, Moderator, VisitScotland Staff
We have been blessed with snow day after snow day...after snow day this winter in Scotland.  We have had a lot more than our fair share over the past couple of months as the snow has lined the rolling hills and beautiful cities of our country.

I'm sure that you will all have pictures of the snow from different parts of Scotland, so my question is...what has been your favourite 'Snowment' this winter??

Was it when the Kelpies were seen sporting this winter look?

How about when these skiers took on the Nevis Range with the Saltire in the foreground?

How about this one?  Two Huskies sitting, majestically staring into the distance over the Cairngorms National Park!  (my fave ;))

Another strong contender is this one, taken also in the Cairngorms National Park.  It showcases how beautiful Scotland is lined with snow, the sunset makes everything seem even more magical.

Share YOUR favourite Snowment from this winter and show us your pictures!  We would love to see them!

    @visitscotlandliam I love snow.  It’s never lost the appeal of childhood for me.  I’ve had a few great snowments this winter but my all out favourite was last weekend in Scotland’s highest village, Wanlockhead.  It’s one of my favourite wee villages and I’ve seen it in all weather but snow - tick. :-)

    The sheep huddling in the trees looked like I’d stumbled into a painting, and having to wipe thick snow off the sign to photograph it was a first.  Plus my wee boy is an absolute snow dog, he adores it, so it was great seeing him so happy.

    Ooooo snow many moments this winter. 

    We visited the Cairngorm Reindeer centre before Christmas and it was magical.

    This was taken just after new year when we walked up Birnam Hill, Perthshire. Cracking day to be out in the snow and sunshine
     This was taken from Cairngorm mountain. One minute we couldn't see the end of our noses and the next it looked like this!

    Loving these pics guys, I'm a snow fiend! Unfortunately the only photos I have of the snow this year are of me being an absolute muppet so won't be sharing any of my own haha.

    @Lochgmarcp @eilidh__cameron do you two have any goodies to share?

    Oh yes, had quite a few snow moments this winter which has been awesome! 

    This is was my favourite, I went for a walk in Kilmartin and stumbled across this beautiful old abandoned cottage. 

    There's been quite a few snowy days in the Glen, this was another one from last weekend at the standing stones. 

    I also couldn't resist a day up Glencoe at the beginning of winter which didn't disappoint. 

    This was the Glen Etive road, not chance of driving down that day however! It was pure ice. 

    Hopefully they'll be a few more snow days before winters out! ❄️
