This bus, owned by Alex Hay of Aberchirder, is barely making it through the huge piles of snow on either side of the road.
The bus, which has registration number SE 3700 and shows 'Aberchirder' on the front display, is on the Banff road near Blacklaw, an area notorious for deep drifting snow.  The huge snowdrifts had to be dug out by hand.
