Nice to get the odd sunny and warm day in this rather unseasonal 'summer'. It was down to base layers and a sunhat not a woolly hat today. With lovely warm sun, a slight breeze and glorious views on the Fiacaill Ridge onto the Cairngorm Plateau. As nearly always, it was deserted again. Quite a few folk on the plateau heading over to Macdui and Cairn Gorm. I wandered off and found lots of wildlife including ptarmigan, a lovely singing snow bunting, skylark and down in Coire Cas lots of Ring Ouzel. A nice romp out on the hills before heading to The Alps for another season of Tour Mont Blancs. Apparently the heat from the Med will be drifting up to the UK next weekend.
