AN TEALLACH, WINTER LIKE
Valued return clients Patrick and Co. are out with me for the next three days on their annual Highland walking break. This year the 8 guys are up in the NW, based in Ullapool. A fabulous spot with so many mountains to choose from. The weather has once again cooled down dramatically. Northerly winds, light but cold air. Today looked to be the best day of the long weekend so the finest mountain on earth was our choice. We enjoyed some wonderful breaks in the snow showers, with bright sunny spells giving fine views of this magestic hill. There are still large areas of hard snow if contemplating a full ridge traverse. We finished the day by dropping to Ardessie falls. Superb clear night and glorious full moon. A top day with top blokes.
