Sunset over Loch Morlich
Fresh snow, Northern Cairngorms
A dusting of snow on Meall a' Bhuachaille
Meall a; Bhuachaille's shadow over Abernethy Forest
Bynack Mor, Cairn Gorm and Sneachda
Strathspey from the top
Another one!
One of the most wonderful aspects of living in the Highlands is the ease of leaving the house and being at the top of a hill in just a couple of hours. From Aviemore I can cycle off road virtually from my doorstep, along lovely forest trails and then a quick walk up to the summit of a Corbett. Today I left at 1pm from the house and was on the top of Meall' a Bhuachaille to watch a wonderful sunset over Loch Morlich and a grand stand view of The Northern Cairngorms. I even got to see an Golden Eagle on the way up the hill. There has been another sprinkling of snow over the mountains. There was a dusting on the last 100m of Meall a' Bhuachaille today. Whilst waiting for the sun to set the temperatures dropped like a rock and there was a biting, cold wind. Fabulous.
