High winds cause Scotland sandstorms

This might look like a seaside beach... but it's actually the middle of a farmer's field in Elgin, Scotland.

Scotland has been experiencing unusually high winds which have caused large amounts of sand to blow onto the fields.

The sand also made it difficult for drivers so snowploughs have been used to remove it from the roads.

BBC Scotland Reporter Craig Anderson recorded this special piece for Newsround.
