Helter Skelter on Princes Street December 2010

Having lived in this city for more than 20 years it is remarkable to see so much snow just pumping down on an hourly basis onto the streets, buildings and confused people below.

George Street but not as we know it - December 2010

Transport has come to a virtual stand still, the main roads are blocked, the airport is shut and the taxi’s being rear wheel drive are tentative when running. So the upside? If you are not working enjoy it! It looks absolutely beautiful.

Scott Monument on Princes Stret

Really stunning. Wrap up, thermals to the fore, take your camera and a small flask for a portable dram and you can enjoy Edinburgh, deserted, quiet and covered in snow. A dream.
