Winter returns

1st May 2015

Due to the return of wintry conditions we are forecasting over the May bank holiday weekend in Northern Cairngorms and Lochaber.  There have been snow showers and cold temperatures over the past week.  Visibility has been a mix of poor and excellent between snow showers.  Yesterday evening was lovely so we headed up to the summit of Cairngorm to take a few photos for the blog.

 

At 7pm and feeling bitterly cold in the brisk N winds.
