Icy Cold Fyrish


The spirit of the Highlands may be seen in the landscape and the atmosphere that changing seasons gives to places which are steeped in history. This picture was taken on an icy cold walk up Fyrish on the 5th February 2021.

Simply beautiful and such an atmosphere. The detail with the ice and snow on the stone was stunning, breath-taking. The seasons and monuments of the past tell such a beautiful story of Highland life.
