Snow tunnels and other amazing snow experiences in Scotland

Perhaps it's a little off-season to be thinking about snow in Scotland, but I discovered incredible photos of snow tunnels on Ben Nevis and Feith Buidhe, recently captured by Iain Cameron and John Stoddard - how stunning are they?!

Has anyone ever experienced them, or a similar snow phenomenon in Scotland?

It also reminded me that I'm yet to try ice wall climbing at Ice Factor at Kinlochleven, something I've been meaning to have a go at for quite a few years! Has anyone else been, or tried ice climbing on Scotland's mountains?

    These are amazing photos.  @VisitScotlandAmyR

    Scotland looks so pretty in snow.  We spend several weekends last winter chasing it.  One of the best was spend in the Trossachs with a hike up snowy Beinn an t-Sidhein by Strathyre.  It looked magical. 

    Next day we headed to Loch Katrine and I can safely say it was one of the most stunning scenes I have ever seen in my life. Like a fairytale.  I was almost afraid to return for fear of shattering the illusion of that day. I have though and it didn't.

    I'm a Scottish travel blogger and freelance writer with an extensive knowledge of travelling in Scotland.  I'm always on the road exploring my wonderful country.  I love remote places, history and the great outdoors.

    Stunning pics @Samantha_Grant! I'm really hoping we get a decent snowfall later in the year so I can enjoy a few beautiful winter walks.
