Looking over to Sgor Gaoithe from Lurchers
Lurcers crags and gullies bare

Lots of windslab on top of refrozen snow, this is an eastern aspect
Summit stillness
Great views down the Lairig Ghru, Braeriach looking good
The hills may look bare, but be aware!
Its been a fine weekend for weather to be out and about after all the over indulgence at Christmas (for some)! There was a strong wind even at lower levels today and despite the forecast of this becoming even stronger it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon for sitting and having your lunch on a summit or two! Lurchers Crag was looking well snowed up on its eastern side, the crags and gullies on the  western side of this ex-Munro have been stripped from the New Years Day thaw and any fresh snow from the last few days has been wind blown. Today the morning winds were blowing the snow once more. There's a good mix of terrain at the moment. Icy paths, windslab, re-frozen snow and drifts. The temperature was rising through the day and this week has a good mix of storms and snowfall and melt freeze cycles. Just a typical January really.
