Snow on Ben More, Mull
Ben More on the island of Mull is the only island Munro outside of Skye. Ben More lies between Loch na Keal to the north, and Loch Scridain to the south. The mountain’s summit is formed where three ridges meet.
Ben More is a popular hill for hillwalkers. There are stunning views from the summit, which is 3169 feet above the lochs. On a clear day it’s possible to see out to Coll and Tiree to the west, and Morvern and Ardnamurchan to the north.
The commonest route for walkers to take is from the north side, starting out at Loch Na Keal, and taking the track which passes by Dhiseig, a house on the northern slopes of the mountain. Since the route starts from sea level, it takes several hours to climb the hill to the top and back.
I love the winter colours on Mull. There’s been some dramatic winter storms recently, with snow then heavy rain in the middle of the week. There’s often a cap of snow on the summit of Ben More at this time of year. This photo was taken from the south side, by Advergnish farmhouse near Pennyghael.
The Water of Leith runs from the Pentland Hills, across Edinburgh, and down to the sea at Leith. I love it down at the shore – there’s plenty of opportunities for a good photographs. And with the combination of so many varied buildings and the water, of course there’s a few good reflections!
I had to go down to Newhaven today to have my laptop repaired. It was such a lovely day I decided to go on the bike and take the camera with me. It was sunny and still (and very cold!) – the shore in Leith was looking particularly lovely .
There was some wild weather over the weekend that I took this photo back in May…and some lovely light in between the storms.

I was through in Glasgow earlier in the year, and took a wander down to Glasgow Green, to visit my old student rowing haunts. There were no signs of boats out on the water at this time of day, but I loved the colour of the boathouses in the gloaming.
