This morning, with a combination of sub zero temperatures and blue skies I ventured off to Duncarnock, the site of a prehistoric iron-age fort near Barrhead. Elevation is over 200m which affords superb views over Glasgow and the Campsie Fells in the distance. As Glasgow remains badly affected by arctic weather journey there was quite an ordeal. Image no 2 below shows the road conditions which I had to traverse on my bike followed by a trudge through deep snow for about 15 minutes to scale the summit. However, the arduous trip was worth the energy as the views and snow sparkling in the sunlight proved a good reward.

Image below (together with this video clip)  shows the city of Glasgow and Campsie Fells in the background.  Decision to take my long lens was vindicated.
