Cold light winds and snow!

27th December 2015

The Cairngorms looked very wintry after yesterdays snowfall.  Drifts above 700m were deep in places, higher up Westerly through North to Easterly aspects caught the snow in sheltered areas.  Rocks were partially hidden in places beneath the snow and many people were out making the most of a good day…
