Heading to Fort William for Christmas

The journey from Edinburgh to Fort William today was very beautiful due to both the frosty weather and the spectacular scenery. Here are a few of the photographs taken when we stopped at the top of the Blackmount near Rannoch Moor and just before we entered Glen Coe.
