IT was a winter wonderland for these youngsters when they joined Sports Minister Shona Robison at Midlothian Snowsports Centre.

The pupils from Bruntsfield Primary School hit the slopes as the Scottish Government delivered its annual winter safety message.

Ms Robison said: “With some snowsports centres opening with the early arrival of snow, I’m glad people are enjoying our countryside. However, I urge everyone to check local weather forecasts, plan ahead and have the correct safety equipment.”
