A well rimed up Fiacaill Ridge

Another cold day up on the hills and Munros of the Cairngorms. The strong winds of yesterday had blown a lot of snow down to the lower ground. So it was deep snow below 800m and much less snow on the higher slopes. Sunshine in Strathspey thismorning with cloud hovering over 1000m. The Fiacaill a' Coire Sneacda is a wonderful wee day out and aways interesting in winter. Ever changing conditions, especially when it's rimed up, like today. It was quiet up on the hill. Just one climbing party topping out from the Fiacaill Buttress. Breezy along the ridge, high windchill. The cloud lifted again later in the afternoon. The Cairngorm plateau was quite bare of snow. More cold, windy and snowy weather forecast in the week ahead. Winter continues.......
