In pictures: snow sweeps across Scotland and the north of England
Large parts of Scotland and northern England have been hit by snow yesterday and this morning.
The unpredictable weather has caused major disruption across the country, but that hasn't stopped amateur photographers from getting outdoors and sharing snowy scenes on Twitter and Instagram.
Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh
The Scottish capital received several dustings of snow yesterday. Twitter user Tom Hetherington took this picture of city landmark, Edinburgh Castle.
