Avery common scene this winter
Debbie admiring the views on the way down
Great views out to Abernethy
Fresh snow on Meall a' Buachaille
Return client Debbie was out with me for her third time in winter conditions. Her two previous trips to the  Highlands in winter have been glorious bluebird days. Third time unlucky, today we were engulfed in whiteness and once more my eyes were fixed upon the compass for most of the day as we entered the white room above 800m on Bynack Mor. There was fresh snow right down to Aviemore level this morning. The winds were light up to mid day when they increased to around 40mph from the north, this started blowing all yesterday's snowfall  all over the show and the wind chill kicked in. It was a goggle day again high up. A lot of wind slab on the east side of the ridge line. We saw no one all day apart from the final hour down by Ryvoan. The cloud did lift at the end of the day and a few holes in the cloud. Looks like a nicer day tomorrow.
