Urgh, what? Nobody wants to travel in Winter you would say. I have heard this quite often from my own friends. Winter is not for travel. It’s for you to snuggle into your bed with a coffee and a book. I do agree with them, but not completely.
For me, Winter is a great time to travel. The main reason for my love story with Winter is that it is the least crowded season. It allows ample time for me to have the places to myself, be it a mountain top, a waterfall or a scenic viewpoint.
Moreover, I can’t get enough of winter landscapes. Especially with snowy mountains, early sunsets and late sunrises winter is undeniably the most picturesque season ( or at least tied with Autumn).
A curved concrete box girder bridge in north-west Scotland
Kylesku Bridge also known as “Drochaid a’ Chaolais Chumhaing” is a curved box girder bridge in North West Scotland and is considered a must-see in the famous NC 500 route.
“The bridge replaces the ferry service which has existed since the early 19th century. The bridge was built for the Highland Regional Council and partly financed by the European Economic Community” — Plaque near the bridge
It was indeed a piece of art in bridge making. The innovative curved shape together with its striking views presents a new world architecture marvel.
The bridge crosses the White Cairn Loch ( also known as Loch a’ Chàirn Bhàin or Loch Cairnbawn ) and is 276m long and cross 130m width of water.
