Lurchers Crag and Strath Spey, snowline at 900m on Braeriach
Overnight it had snowed above 900m and this morning it was quite foggy in Aviemore, which means it is usually clear high up on the hills. Sure enough we soon broke through the mist at 300m on the bike ride into the Liarig Ghru. Braeriach was looking good from lower down the ridge and at 900m we hit the snowline. Beautiful crisp snow and some old snow from last week had frozen up. Stunningly clear skies all day and what a pleasure to be wandering up to the summit of Braeriach with dazzling sun, snow and hardly a breeze. Coire Brochain is starting to look quite wintry now as snow is building up on the upper reaches of the gullies. I'll let the photos tell the story......
