The winter in this part of Scotland has been unusually cold with many days of snow and frosty nights. The gales that usually batter the island in the winter took a detour and what was left were a lot of sunny and crisp winter days. The Paps of Jura have been covered in snow for most of the winter and this situation hasn’t changed so far. A friend visited the island on one of the darkest days of the year, 28 December 2009, and sent me a couple of images from the snow covered Paps and from other places on Jura. A lovely set of images which give you an idea how the island looks in the winter. Enjoy!
