As promised, here are a few of the snowy photos I captured on my travels around Bute today. It was looking rather magical :-)

I could count on one hand how many days it has snowed on the Isle of Bute since I moved here over 4 years ago. When I opened up my blinds this morning I was pretty excited to see big snow flakes drifting by the window. Despite having a nasty mancold I quickly got dressed and set out to take some photos before it melted. I'll post a few later but meantime here is a little video of the view across Rothesay ☃️
