Nichole & Winston enjoying the sun and snow
Everywhere views
Breaking trail on the zig-zags
The hills of Ardgour looking great too
It's going to look a lot more snowier than this by the weekend!

Over in the west today and out with Nichole & Winston from Malaysia on Ben Nevis. They chose a cracker of a day to get to the summit in fine winter splendour. The last few days have seen plenty of cold weather and snow showers which have transformed the hills through out The Highlands and are now looking in fine winter fettle. We enjoyed blue skies, bright sunshine, hardly a breath of wind and snow down to 500m. It was hard going in drifts on the zig-zags and we were breaking trail today. Very surprised to see only 6 folk all day on the hill. What a day NOT to get out! Staying cold and sunny till end of the week and then more heavy snow forecast everywhere on Friday. Winter is well and truly back.
