Stunning photos of November in Scotland

Written by Fiona

November 30 2016

The weather and scenery this November in Scotland had been spectacular. We have enjoyed an autumn that lasted into the early part of the month, then sudden deep snow in the mountains and now a thawing. In addition, some lucky people caught sight of the “Supermoon”.

Here I reveal some of my favourite photos captured in November. Many thanks to all those that have allowed me to publish these pictures.

Jill Sowden's incredible photo of pancake ice. I had never seen these before. They are formed by foam swirling in water and freezing. She spotted them on the way down Geal Charn, Laggan.
