I took a short walk around Stirling in ice and snow. Overcast boring skies meant a focus on the buildings and streets. The icicles are interesting hanging at an angle from The Golden Lion Hotel, Stirling. You can see there has been a constant left-right wind blowing up King street meaning as the icicle forms, it grows at an angle.
An interesting look at mid-winter from mid-summer to remind us of Scotland’s seasonal climate. This was during a period of high-pressure with little wind, clear skies and bitterly cold evenings. The trees found in Dollar Glen have good variety in shape and variety. The naming of this glen is interesting with the Burn of Sorrow above Jacobs Ladder crowned by Castle Gloom aka Castle Campbell. Here kids let’s go for a walk to Castle Gloom eh…..?

Gartmorn Dam, Clackmannanshire is still heavily iced over, but pockets of meltwater have created interesting patterns that caught my eye. The more time spent there, the more I saw which is a theme I plan to return to.
