Snow, Ice & All Things Nice!

We've been through just about every type of weather known to man this past week. We began the week with several inches of snow on the ground and a picture perfect landscape! Then, on Thursday, The Big Storm arrived, bringing gusts of 165 miles per hour to the Cairngorm mountain range. Here on Skye winds touched almost 80 miles per hour which was bad enough! It was difficult to know how it could actually have been any worse than it was here but we certainly didn't get the extremes of it!

The winds blew away the remaining snow in the hedgerows but yesterday morning we awoke to another light dusting! It really is quite stunning to be able to look out of your window and see that wild Scottish landscape! We thought this icy weather was the perfect time to continue the theme and share this delicious Iced Coffee & Cakes. With the cold weather and Christmas Day itself now just two weeks away we've also been thinking ahead to Burns Night, that Scottish celebration of the poetry and life of Robert Burns! That though, is for next time!

Enjoy all the Christmas preparations!
