How winter should be…
7th January 2018
It was a lovely cold clear day, much as winter should be. It was good to see lots of people out enjoying the hills, although it did mean the lay-bys were full and parking could be quite tricky. At higher levels there is a fair amount of soft snow which can make travel hard work where there is not a track to follow. In places water ice is forming on paths, creating a hazard in places. A few times on my way up and down the Buachallie today I decided to cut through the heather rather risk the ice glazed path. I also learned (not for first time) that just because the camera says the battery is fully charged when a warm office in the morning, does not mean it will have much charge when on top of a cold mountain. Fortunately I did get a few shots before it died.
