Wild farewell to 2016

31st December 2016

It was a grey, wet and windy day with storm force gusts for hill-goers to contend with.  The snow cover is fairly sparce, mainly on North to East aspects above 800 metres.  A major thaw was still underway during the morning with the burns the most impressive feature of the landscape.  However it was getting cooler by mid-day.
