End of Summer catch up...

As a fresh dusting of snow covers Ben Nevis down to 900m today, it feels like winter is not too far way.
The end of the summer season saw some lovely settled weather and high pressure,allowing some spectacular days and stunning autumn colours. Here are some captioned photos to show work and play over the last few weeks. Thanks to clients and colleagues for making this a fantastic end to summer 2016!
