So, despite road conditions like these:
If truth be told, the snow was a little scary for the half-hour or so that we were driving through it – so much so that we had to navigate round a pair of cars which had knocked chunks out of each others front wings (the drivers and passengers were okay) – but the wintry weather faded with the further west that we drove.
Arran itself has been entirely untouched by snow – something we were pleasantly delighted to see and one local passenger on the ferry over to the island was chuffed to see reasonably blue skies and sun for the first time in a few days – and the weather is pretty decent for this time of year. We don’t come here for Grecian sun and temperatures – in Scotland, in February? – so anything that’s not a meteorological extreme of some kind is very welcome.
More updates to come throughout the week – hopefully with some pictures to help illustrate why we come here so often.
