Snow in Edinburgh

Social media went wild this week as the skies opened over Edinburgh, and we were blanketed in fluffy white snow for a few short hours. Though we’re no strangers to chilly weather here in our beautiful city, we couldn’t resist gathering together some of the gorgeous snow shots taken by the Scotch Whisky Experience team this week as they made their ways to work from all corners of Edinburgh.

Eilidh and Gillian took these fantastic shots of the majestic Edinburgh Castle in the (shortlived) morning sunshine…

Alison took a photo of a crisp white Johnston Terrace as she walked to work – you can spot the Scotch Whisky Experience and the Hub in the distance.

Hannah took a stroll across the Meadows this morning, capturing a beautiful photo of a snow-topped Arthur’s Seat and the Salisbury Crags.

Angela took a different route along Regent Terrace (where the Burns Monument sits), catching this early morning photo of the sunrise over a frosty white city, including the churchyard that featured in last week’s post about a walk with Robert Burns.

Gavin caught the snow-capped hills surrounding Edinburgh as he walked to the train station at Wallyford.

Cara took the icy route up to the Scotch Whisky Experience via Ramsay Gardens (take care everyone! It can be a slippery walk to the top or bottom!)…

…and managed to meet this wee chap on her way up.

Rebecca and Andrew caught these great photos of a snowy Castlehill during our Distiller’s Fair back in December.

Ross took a beautiful slow motion video of the snow falling outside the Scotch Whisky Experience. Take a look at the video on our Facebook page.

Finally, what a difference 24 hours makes! Take a look at these photos of the back of our beautiful building, with Edinburgh Castle in the background, taken before and after the snowfall.
