There were 'Happy New Year' threads in the forum in 2008, but no forum-based collection of photos taken on New Year's Day. However, 108 contributors took and submitted photos of their outings on the day.

It was murky in the north of the Union with one instance of snow in the east, some blue skies in the extreme south.

I've arranged my selection from the images in more or less (map) north to south order, and added a brief description where there was none.

1 south of Loch Badanach

NR2166 : Within WW2 Bunker by Alistair Campbell
Unusual that this bunker is open. View within bunker showing blue painted walls and a horse-drawn carriage! Looks like it has been there years. The entrance to the shelter suggests that the local sheep use this shelter for protection from the climate and have left much evidence of them being there...

NX2367 : Pond and abandoned ATV on Artfield Fell by David Baird
Artfield Fell is the site of a windfarm, but on what was a very foggy day the wind turbines were virtually invisible in the mist, so instead I opted for this photo of an artificial pond and abandoned derelict all-terrain vehicle as a first geograph for the square.
