I spent Christmas with family in Glasgow and then headed north to Lochcarron via Glen Coe, the Loch Oich, and Glen Coe. It was an utterly spectacular drive, broken only by excited pauses as we stopped so I could try (and usually fail) to photograph it.

The rest of the holiday was also exciting, due to having no water due to a frozen underground pipe and the foul lurgy that we had managed to pick up from my one-year-old nephew, but it was worth it...
