Storm Dennis not quite in full flow!

16th February 2020

The ski road was closed today due to severe storm conditions across the Cairngorms.  Blizzard conditions throughout the day above 700m.  Very strong winds made for very difficult walking conditions especially in exposed areas.

An average of minus 5 Celsius on the summit of Cairngorm with 60 to 90 mph winds picking up through the afternoon.

At 580m looking across to the Allt Burn (very exposed and windy at this point)
