A beautiful blue skies day at last. I headed NW to where the weather is best and the mountains supreme! My old stomping ground when I lived up in Torridon many moons ago and still the best place on Earth! Caught the train to Achnashellach and walked into Coire Lair and the fabulous mountains between Strath Carron and Torridon. I fancied the big grade 1 gully on the main face of Sgorr Ruadh but still a lot of windslab in it. So a walk up to the top. The winds were light this morning but in the afternoon the cold SE picked up and the snow started shifting. Snow to 500m and easy going. The sun shone most of the day, some cloud did roll in at mid day but broke up again and a fine afternoon. I only saw two folk all day- couple of climbers on the NW facing crag just under the 904m top. Looks like another wild and snowy day tomorrow. The winter is definitely holding on!
