Hard, untrodden snow and blue skies! Looking over to Beinn Meadhoin
Karen enjoing the sunshine and fab snow
Guess what I got for Christmas?
Loch Avon almost frozen
Looking over to Shelter Stone Crag, Ben Macdui & Braeriach/Cairn Toul
The Cairn Gorm weather station well rimed - The wind isn't always a bad thing!
We've enjoyed beautiful Christmas Day and Boxing Day weather here in The Cairngorms.Today though was an absolute cracker. The two nights of low temperatures have frozen the snow pack solid and it was cramponing all day on the hill. WE wanted a bit of peace and quiet so took a longer, more scenic and quiet route up onto Cairn Gorm. The early morning cloud drifted away and a glorious blue skies day with not a breath of wind. We quickly left the Cairn Gorm summit for even more solitude-descending down to Stag Rocks for some great views out to Loch Avon and the Shelter Stone Crag. Remember this time last year? Torrential rain at all levels and gales. It's a fantastic start to winter!
