At the moment, I live in the north east of Scotland. Some things about being here get me down from time to time:

Its so far away from the rest of the country, from family and old friends.
It rains lots.
Its very grey (the ground, the buildings and the sky).
The city feels small and limited in some ways.

The winters are long and dark and windy.

But then I come across views like this:

I took this on a frosty Sunday morning. If I was travelling somewhere far away and saw this view, I would want to live here. This is the Scotland I love. This is what makes the list above worth it.

I may not live here forever, but whilst I’m here, I will appreciate this.
