In winter, Scotland’s cities and towns can be a bit grey but the countryside is spectacular.

The hillsides are covered with coppery brown bracken.

The pasture lands are lime green, the lochs slate-black.

An icing-sugar dusting of snow on the hills.

The palest of greeny-blue lichen shavings on the birch trees.

Sometimes, I just had to put on the brakes and say, Wow.
