BIG SNOWFALL ACROSS THE HIGHLANDS

Stunning scenery in the Glenmore Forest
The best view we got on Meall a' Bhuachaille
The Northern Cairngorms clear for a spell late afternnon
Beautiful forest scenery
Sunshine for a wee while
A different story on the summit
You can't have enough of this surely?
Here's the sun
Rime ice higher up, summit cairn Meall a' Bhuachaille
A decent dump of snow overnight had transformed the Cairngorms again. With a good coating of snow to low levels this morning. We had a great day up on Meall a' Bhuachaille. This is a great wee hill and is best enjoyed by doing a traverse walk which takes you through the beautiful Glenmore Forest and Ryvoan. It was even more spectacular with the trees all snowed up and looking stunning. There was very low cloud earlier in the day and you couldn't even see the hill from just out of the tree line. A gentle wind soon picked up, as always, just before the summit cairn. Poor visibility until we got down to Ryvoan and the clouds lifted to reveal the Cairngorms for an hour or so, we even got a few glimpses of sunshine to lighten up the snow covered trees. It started to snow heavily again by dusk. It seems that the Southern  and western Highlands had even more snow than up in The Cairngorms. Looking good and temperatures staying low.
