Atmospheric cloud over The Cairngorms

Very little remaining show on The Cairngorms

Red Squirrel feeding up for winter

Last nights Supermoon

Sunny skies on Meall a' Bhuachaille
Unfortunately all our wonderful snow and cold conditions were wiped out at the beginning of the week. A dramatic rise in temperatures over in the NE wiped out much of the snow that had built up in The Cairngorms. All is not lost as another spell of quite cold weather is forecast to return tomorrow and through the weekend. It was a tad chilly and strong winds up on Meall a' Bhuachaille this morning. The skies were quite wonderful with cloud being swept over the Cairngorm plateau. One minute it was shrouded in thick cloud, next there was sun shining over it's remaining patches of snow. Clear skies over Aviemore last night and a good view of the Supermoon. It certainly was bright but I couldn't notice it was any bigger than usual! The Red Squirrels down at Glenmore were nibbling away at their nuts, fattening up for the winter. Shame to hear our squirrels have yet another threat to their existence, a strain of Medieval Leprosy.
