Red Squirrels with blonde tails

The pictures are poor, but they show Red Squirrels that I photographed in Scotland, in woodland next to Loch Ness. I saw a number of Reds that day, but the one thing they all had in common was a striking blonde/white tail. I've seen Reds elsewhere in Scotland, as well as in the south on Brownsea
Island, but I've never seen this colouration elsewhere. I'd be interested to know if anyone has an explanation for this!
