Winter has arrived!

After what has been a very mild end to 2014, the weather has turned decidedly wintery up here on west coast of Scotland and we've had out first snow fall of the winter.

This was the view out of our window yesterday morning when I opened the curtains.

Ok, I know it doesn't look like much but we don't get very much snow at all here on Isle of Bute as we are right at the end of the Gulf stream. What we do get a lot of is high winds, especially south westerlies and that's when the ferries go off.

So over the past few days we've had strong winds, hailstorms, rains and snow. Such a difference to Christmas day when it was lovely and sunny and we sat on the bench down on the shore for an hour.

So for now we wrap up warm and keep the wind up torch close to hand incase the power goes off.
