A recent cold snap has seen temperatures of minus seven degrees centigrade.
Clear skies and sunshine have brought a touch of magic to our area.
Also some very cold weather.

A short journey through Croftamie and onto the old military road that runs towards Balloch produces some spectacular scenery..
Beautiful clear days and bright sunshine make all the difference...
