Some more pics from this morning in the Lomond Hills. Just the most sublime colours at sunrise. We had 12cm this morning, sunny all day except for a slight freshening up in the afternoon, now -0.7C an

The snow still hasn't come to anything beyond a slushy mess at the house so we went to the snow. At the small car park at the top of Glen Ogle it was proper snow with a few inches on the ground. By th

All fine down here MS  ta. Looking forward to an epic winter to round off a very weird year!

Surely it's going to be a weird winter to end the weird year?

May not be too exciting but loved the colour of the setting sun and the leaves turning this why I love autumn

Certainly a cool day here with odd light drizzly showers and a fresh NW wind.Up most of last night calving cows ( Why won"t they do it in daylight hours ) in steading . Just as well as rained the whole time. One eventually calved by vet suffered a bit of damage to a hip but finally on its feet drinking off mum late pm today.A big cool down compared to just 10 days ago but with potential to dry up good for cattle outside.Maximum of 9c here today.

Up in Highland Perthshire for the weekend for what was supposed to be a birthday get together that was much curtailed by the new regulations. Anyway heavy showers here brought in on a strong at times NorthWesterly wind and feeling rather cold. Higher mountains pretty much in cloud all day so not sure if snow is still on the tops. My daughter and her pals are climbing Ben Vorlich and Stuc A'Chroin tomorrow so hope it is a bit quieter then.

Still dry and calm here. Anybody up in the islands? Son is heading for the Uig ferry and going to Lochmaddy = what's it like up there? He isn't a good traveller.. 🤓

This would likely deposit snow on the hills at worse....

Only for fun at that range though. 

Today started wet and brrezy but cleared to occasional sun in the afternoon. Never warm but not cold either.

Some folk getting excited over in the mad house. Wonder how long before we see toys and prams being rolled out. 😂😂

It’s common already in the winter thread from some 🙄 I can understand if we were say halfway through winter and it had been 💩 but the current outlook is promising to me with the snow cover and cold air looking like it will be advancing quite far west out of Siberia in the next 10 days or so and with the potential for the Greenland high u wouldn’t rule out our chances of getting into a NE / E flow at some stage bearing in mind it’s still October too 👌

Lovely day high up above Tweeddale. Went off piste and ended up pinned against a deer fence descending the hill. Not so good. Pretty though.

I was reading that thread this morning...they take life very seriously, don't they?

Lovely walk today but regretted wearing my 3-in-1 jacket as I was roasted less than half way through my 5 mile walk! High of 16c, low of 6.8c and marginally over 1mm of rain.

Wait til u see how much it kicks off when the models show UK snow chances 😆🤪 Think a recent example is the failed easterly a few winters ago think that one still gives @Mr Frost nightmares 🤣 ️

Showery morning, drier afternoon if mostly overcast.

Generally light winds and a max of 10c.

Nature at its most brutal on show in the garden this afternoon.  Family busy feeding the birds then a sparrowhawk decided to join the feast; within just 3 seconds what was a dunnock turned into a single feather lying on the ground.  Kids completely dazed at the speed of the event and I was astounded at the brass neck of the hawk to swope down with so many humans close by.

Raining again.. and the heating is on again.

Not only has my heating been on, the lights are on here!

To quote my kids...it's minging out there! High so far of 9.4c and 3.05mm of rain which isn't boding well for getting out and walking today - just hope it brightens up towards the end of the afternoon.
