BYNACK MOR - A BEAUTIFUL WINTER'S DAY

Brian getting plenty of photo's today, looking up to the fine ridge on Bynack Mor

Return client, Brian is out with me for two days of winter walking and a brush up on some skills. We couldn't get up to the Coire Cas carpark today as there had been a lot of heavy drifting of snow yesterday and last night. So we decided on a foray up to Bynack Mor from Glen More. This isolated Munro as a feeling of remoteness as it's quite a walk - in, but the excellent tracks and paths lower down the hill make fast going. The sun was out most of the day on our hill, whilst the main Cairngorm hills had a capping of cloud through much of the time. There was some excellent, hard, frozen snow which had been scoured along the ridge. There was a strong westerly wind but from the summit we headed down to The Barns of Bynack, a favourite spot of mine and the finest Tor in the Cairngorms. Here we were well sheltered and had a fine pic nic in the snow.

It looks like there'll be plenty more nice days to come over the coming week
