A stunning day with wall to wall sunshine, no wind and crystal clear visibility. Great conditions for some serious winter navigation in the Cairngorms! What a day to be out on the tops. Caroline out on day two of her 'winter' course. It was billed has a day of navigation which turned into a day of just fabulous hillwalking amongst some of the best viewpoints in the Cairngorms. Caroline navigated with ease up onto Ben Macdui and then found the best view point of Cairn Toul-Braeriach, it's not the summit by the way! We enjoyed the fine scenery in peace whilst above us the crowds chatted away with a not so fine view point. Fabulous clarity of air. Ben Nevis seen clear has a bell. We headed over to another beauty spot for lunch, the lip of the loch Avon basin. Once again a peaceful spot with glorious views (no one goes here either).
A brilliant couple of days.
That's it, my winter season is over. Away goes the ironmongery and out cone the summer boots and lighter rucksack. Hot weather next week apparently.
Thanks to all my clients, friends and of course my wife for some memorable winter days this season.
Not that long until November :)
