Sunset and Strathspey
Winter Woodland
More snowfall overnight and this morning in The Cairngorm area, probably much more snowfall in the Northwest Highlands too. The afternoon turned brighter with some nice clear skies. Snow still lying down to all levels with the low temperatures. It was another winter wonderland in the woodland of the Craigellachie Nature Reserve, a beautiful short walk from Aviemore. If you've never been here you should take an hour out and enjoy this beautiful spot. There was a nice sunset from the top of the hill above the woodland. It got pretty cold whilst taking photos for just 15 minutes on the top. I had 5 layers of fleece and down on. Imagine going for a short walk with no spare clothing on the Scottish Hills this time of year, well some folk do! The lochan's down in the trees are just starting to ice over. Black Friday today. What would you rather be doing? Shopping for something you don't really need and not even a bargain or walking in our glorious winter hills?

Tarmachan Mountaineering doesn't do Black Friday advertising cons and false sales. We just offer great value instruction, skills training and guided adventures, every day.
More cold and snow forecast over next few days. Apparently it's going to stay like this well into December. Great stuff.
