    U can't have all this wonderful marginal success all year and think the devil wouldn't take his revenge 😈

    True! On the right side of marginal more than usual! He's still a laminate floor though 🤣

    That’ll be Charles on the Tractor, his farm has the Strathdon snow clearing contract with Aberdeenshire Cooncil, it’ll be one of the better winters for him this year.

    That's him, the photo was titled Charlie Sna Ploo! 

    I expected they would have needed the blower to get up there but I guess it just depends how it blows in. 

    Light snow falling here now - looks like proper stuff after a day of wet rubbish.

    Can confirm a good covering on all surfaces here. Hopefully it stays that way...

    Where in Aberdeen are you at 156m? Highest point in the city is 130m so you must be just outside somewhere...

    Kingswells - still technically a city suburb but right on the city/shire border. Snow getting heavier now and building nicely.

    Where is highest point in the city ? Must be in Mastrick ?

    Turning to snow in culter now - lower uppers must be kicking in now ?

    It is showing up very nicely on the TrafficScotland road cameras currently. There seems to be some form of intermittent sleet here this evening.

    I remember when Kingswells was in the ‘shire 🤦‍♀️ 

    Almost as good as Westhill for sna.

    Fingers crossed as the night goes on and the colder air digs in we'll see more and more parts of the city come into the game.

    Excluding western suburbs I would presume so. Good to see more snow being reported in the region!

    Yes, I believe Dalwhinnie just pips Braemar and Tomintoul.

    Corgarff is higher but that's a mere hamlet as opposed to a village.

     

    I think Wanlockhead in the Southern Uplands is the highest village in Scotland

    Its been nothing but heavy rain here on and off today! Starting to get some sleet now but hoping its turns into big flakes sooner rather than later! ❄❄❄

    Yes, highest point is between Mastrick and Northfield near the Sheddocksley playing fields at 130m. Although I think some parts of north Sheddocksley might get near to 140m
