It was a shock to the system today, back to 'proper Scottish winter conditions', gone were the Alpine like weather and views we've been enjoying most of the winter. Fred and I made our way along the Beinn a' Bheithir ridge above Ballachuillish. The weather worsend as the day wore on with the cloudbase dropping and showers of snow above 900m becoming more frequent. With some strong winds thrown in for good measure just to bring us back to reality. Still lots of snow left above 800m despite the milder temperatures of the last couple of days. Some freeze thaw will be good over the next few days, maybe even some clear sky days too?
