Fiacaill Buttress

Sun hitting the buttresses of Coire an t-Sneachda

Lots of Meadow Pipits today
The summer months of July and August are always hit and miss with weather. I do enjoy the Spring and Autumn periods much more but when the sun does shine and the air clarity is good then the Highlands are beautiful. The west coast seemed to fair best today. Over here in the Cairngorms we began with some dull, cloudy and drizzly conditions first thing this morning. By late morning though it brightened up and there were some nice breaks in the cloud. It was lovely to be back home and a wander about in the Northern Corries. Coire Sneachda was deserted and the Fiacaill a Coire Sneachda too. Some lovely atmospheric conditions as I worked my way up the coire and scrambling along the ridge. Lots of meadow pipits everywhere on the hill today, ptarmigan not so many and elusive. Downhill again tomorrow with a band of wind and rain.
