Shetland ponies posed in their winter woollies this week to mark the Year of Natural Scotland 2013.

The aim of the Year is to celebrate the country’s outstanding natural beauty and showcase the best of its historic landscapes, natural playgrounds and surprising wildlife.

With a spotlight on events and new attractions, this year’s highlights include Up Helly Aa, Europe’s largest annual Viking fire festival in Shetland next week and family treasure hunts on horseback during the Wild Spring Festival in Dumfries and Galloway in March and April.
