A stunning day.

2nd January 2019

Headed up to Ben Macdui then round to Derry Cairngorm today. Much cooler with a lot of footpath ice starting to form.

Great to see a lot of people out enjoying the stunning conditions.

Sron Riach to Derry Cairngorm.


The ground is frozen with ice forming in many locations.


View from Ben MacDui towards Braeriach.

Very occasional pockets of soft snow.

    Great co-ordination between you and the N Cairngorms blog today with views of Braeriach from multiple aspects. Splendid pics. I’m sorry to have missed such a day on the hills. Keep up the hard work!

      Thanks Tom. It was quite a day! Hopefully there will be plenty opportunities for you this Winter. You never know you might even get some snow!
