A lot of snow been dumped the last few days, especially in the West Highlands. Travelling back up to Fort William by train from Glasgow today, with stunning views all the way. Blue skies and very little wind this morning so I hopped off at Bridge of Orchy station and nipped up Beinn Dorain between the morning and afternoon trains. Only 4 hours so not quite enough time to get to the top and back, hard going in the powder snow, up to shin level. Great day for photos. I was breaking trail but there were a couple of climbers on the west crag of Beinn Dorain, something looking steep. the crags well iced and rimed up. There was high level cloud floating in from the west and the snow arrived again late afternoon. A lot of snow on the hills then, fantastic.
