It was a great day to be out enjoying the late winter conditions. Plenty of blue skies and sunny spells in the morning, hardly any breeze on the summits. There is a fresh covering of snow down to 800m in the Northern Cairngorms. Of course it's all superficial and cosmetic. Once the temperatures go back to normal May figures it will vanish quickly, but forecast is for remaining below freezing on the tops for the rest of the week. Remember this time last year? We had glorious hot temperatures and the beginning of the Scottish heatwave.
My 'record' for delivering a winter course stands at 11th May. Will it be broken?
