Running in Scotland in February

Thinking of a run in Scotland in February ? Visit Scotland informs us that December, January and February are generally the coldest months in Scotland, with the average maximum temperature usually around 5C (41F). The average number of days with snow falling in Scotland ranges from 15 to 20 days.

So it looks like February is a bit of a brilliant month for taking running pictures and there does seem to be a good variety in our collection. Perhaps the strength of the sunshine helps in terms of lighting and of course we are in the last winter month.
