A Wintry Wander.


The promise of a sunny Sunday encouraged us and friends to take a walk to The Whangie.


The most snow we've seen all winter. 

After about an hour of walking (slowly!) N & friend approach the Whangie. The path was very muddy and boggy in places, we were glad of our wellies.

 A small part of the Whangie on the right, Loch Lomond and surrounding hills ahead.

 Zooming in on the hills...

 ...and a little more.

 Heading back after playing amongst the rocks.

Bird in tree.

 N needed a piggyback towards the end.

Sun!

 The sun catches snow topped Ben Lomond.

Tasty (though odd looking!) hot sausage snack, heated up on our friends campervan stove once back at the carpark. Yum.

Great walk and love the zoom in on the snowy hills. I thought they were clouds at first!

What fabulous scenery - a lovely day for a walk and beautiful views.

What a great day you had for your walk, especially after all the duff weather we've had. It's years since I last went up there, no idea why as it has brilliant views. Thanks for the tour.

A beautiful day and a beautiful walk ... those snow-capped hills are lovely. I love the "bird in tree" photo - perfectly centered bird! :)

Beautiful skies. I can hardly wait for my next trip to Scotland. You live in a beautiful country!! A couple of days ago, I wrote another post on my holiday to Scotland.

The walk looks so beautiful, the clouds are spectacular, but the snack looks a bit questionable if you know what I mean!
Hugs,

Hello, I just discovered your very lovely thru Lady Bird Diaries. I loved seeing all the very lovely scenery on your walk.. I also enjoyed seeing the pebbles and shells along with the wee drift wood pieces. The beach looks very beautiful along with the Glimmering Sea. I am your newest follower. Hugs Judy
