Spectacular Winter Scenery

Scotland is world famous for it's beautiful scenery although I think there is something just a little bit more magical about the landscape when the snow falls on the just looks so beautiful!

I went for a wee stroll and took this picture of Ben Lomond from Duck Bay (at the southern end of Loch Lomond) on a frosty morning and it was just stunning!

Where are your favourite places to enjoy the winter scenery?

    Great pic @VisitScotlandAngela! I took this photo on Braid Hills on the weekend. Such a beautiful, almost 360 view of Edinburgh up there and even better when you time it with the sun going down :) I guess this view isn't specific to winter as it would be beautiful in summer too, but in winter you get the added buzz of crunching on ice underfoot and the twinkling lights that come much earlier in the day this time of year.

    Lovely day for a walk on Saturday - nice to see the snow on the hills. This was from part of the Cateran Trail near Glenisla...

  • @VisitScotlandBrian I'm the same - I went my length there last year when I got distracted snapping and slipped on black ice.  Luckily I can laugh at myself.  It helps as slipping in the great outdoors is a speciality of mine.

    The Cairngorms are a must! Especially when you can explore on skis!

    There are some great pictures here! 

    We've been lucky in having a settled weather pattern this last week, with deep snow on the hills, little wind and crystal clear air.  I climbed a couple of Corbetts from Lochearnhead last weekend and savoured superb winter walking conditions, including a fantastic cloud inversion, a fogbow and snow up to our thighs.

    Lots more photos and a short video on my blog.

    Nothing better for the mind and soul than a tranquil stroll through a frosty Tentsmuir Forest :)

    The road A939 from Ballater to Tomintoul has amazing winter scenery.No matter what season it is the scenery in this area is spectacular.

    I just love winter scenery!  Here is a wee selection of snowy pictures I've taken in and around Ballater and Braemar over the last few years.  <3

    A snowy River Dee.

    Beautiful snow scene on the River Clunie, Braemar.

    Snowy River Dee with Creag Collich in the back ground, so peaceful! 

    You would think this would be a cold spot for a rest! I was lucky enough to have this picture shown on the BBC Scotland website!
