Some where cold - look its snowing there. Huge flakes too.

My first thought on seeing this was somewhere north of Skye on west coast mainland.

SW corner of Ardnamurchan?

Having now looked up Fladda-chuain, clearly not.

How about Garbh Eilean, Shiants?

Looks like a perfectly good wind for using the flappy things.

Flappy things went up shortly after this was taken. Had not been much wind and a bit of a tidal gate to traverse.
