Windy with Heavy Drifting

8th February 2017

Heavy drifting once again with strong winds, mostly strongest at lower levels as the wind accelerates off the mountain, calmer in the coires usually.

Very hard going on foot, knee to thigh deep in places – nearly time for skis – good going up – not so sure about down though.

Another very wintry cold day, not complaining though, its good to be in it !


A mirage like Meall a Buachaille through the spindrift in Coire an Lochain

A Ptarmigan in its element in the blizzard.

Another windy day on Cairngorm
