An image of the Lairig Ghru, taken early this afternoon. There’s been a mixture of weather today; at low level light showers of snow with bright sunny spells. In the early afternoon a longer period of bright sunshine, though clouds were gathering on the far horizon
Working near Loch an Eilein today. The snow lying thick yesterday is fast disappearing. Weather is showers of rain and violent squally blasts of wind. We managed to finish the task a couple of minutes before the wind roared and the heavens opened
The weight of yesterday’s driven snow bent some birch trees over the road near Upper Tullochgrue farm.
These are our 2 heavyweights in our deer farm. They were joined by a much smaller wild stag, but he seemed to be lying low when this image was taken.
Our farm shop has had a makeover but is still crammed with a stunning array of delicious goodies including Rothiemurchus produced beef and venison.
A wintry looking Loch an Eilein with ice formed at the north end. Good news for snowsporters is that snow seems to be gradually creeping lower and lower down the hills.
One of our Rangers was lucky enough to have a close encounter with a friendly squirrel today. This little inquisitive chap got a little treat as well as the Ranger had some peanuts in his bag! It is the season of giving after all.
Merry Christmas to all the Rothiemurchus followers!
