ANOTHER WINDY DAY AGAIN IN THE CAIRNGORMS
The now usual pattern of high winds on the tops continued today. With forecasts of 50mph plus on the higher summits Karen and I headed up Meall a' Bhuachaille. Although it was a milder day lower down the hill it was still cold on the top with icy rocks and we still had 40-50 winds even at the hills relatively low altitude of 810m. Tomorrow looking a much better day with sunshine and light winds-until evening when the usual pattern continues!
