FINAL HILL DAY IN 2019

Final hill day if 2019. You would normally expect a snow laden Cairngorm plateau. Unfortunately the recent heatwave has stripped a lot of snow. It went cold yesterday and for the first time in days the freezing level was below the summits. What snow is remaining has frozen solid. The sun shone and blue skies all day. I'd rather have a blizzard. Hopefully snow arriving soon. Happy New Year.
