taken 7 years ago, near to Kenknock, Stirling, Great Britain

Sgiath Bhuidhe ('yellow wing')
Sgiath Bhuidhe ('yellow wing')
The use of the Gaelic word sgiath in Perthshire hill names is said to indicate a place of shelter, like the crook of a wing, and usually indicates a place sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds.

The yellow presumably refers to the colour of the vegetation, hidden under a blanket of snow today.
