Although at noon the thermometer had climbed to a high of 5.4 ° for much of the morning the temperature never reached 4°. It was so peaceful . It was not just the almost complete absence of wind in the morning and it was also sunny. I guess a crisp, bright morning.
Drawing back the curtains we were treated to yet another great sunrise. As we feasted on porridge, we enjoyed the clear views across to the Paps of Jura. Yet, the real treat of the day was still hidden from view.
On the way home from the church family gathering, we had a breath taking view of snow capped peaks. Although there is no snow on Tiree, the surrounding mountain tops are dressed with snow. With our island being low lying, we have big horizons that afford not only views of approaching weather systems, but on clear days, views to other Hebridean islands near and far,

There’s no snow on Tiree.
All the benefits of snowy vistas.
None of the inconvenience.
This is ‘Life on Tiree’.
