After a couple of days of very stormy, snowy and high windchill conditions it was quite a pleasant day to be out on the hill. Karen and I had a wander up to Meall a' Buachaille. Being under 900m and islolated from the main Cairngorm range it makes a nice half a days walk. The winds on the summit were only around 40mph and on the way up hardly a breeze. There are still weaknesses deep in the snowpack and it's very variable on many aspects, good route planning still required in the continuing cold temperatures.
Off to Skye for 3 days tomorrow. The North West looking the place to be for sunshine and snow. Winds slowly easing as the week progresses.
