  Winter Scenery - Tranquil Beauty
by scotlandscotour

Scotland has snow every winter and despite generally mild winters by the sea, its mountains are surprisingly viscious and dangerous to the unprepared.

However, you can enjoy the beauty and peaceful solitude of the mountains without risking your neck on ice and snow.

And there is virtually no one about!!!

Watch out for deer on the roads in winter and remember the daylight is shorter - dark by 4pm in December. However, in March (when we took this picture) you have the best of both worlds!

Directions: Highlands - north of Edinburgh / Glasgow.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
