It’s another wild day in the Cairngorms. The winds have ramped up a few notches since yesterday (gusting 90mph at the car park) and its been snowing and drifting for most of the day above mid mountain levels. Â The photograph below demonstrates the different extremes of weather over the past week. Â Only two days ago this road was covered in deep snow but since then there has been a lot of intense ploughing and digging, and now its finally clear of snow and currently thawing at this level.
