Poor visibility on Lochnagar.

8th March 2019

It was surprisingly wild on Lochnagar today with poor visibility and a bit of snow blowing around at 1000 metres. With the ground now becoming white, the GPS and compass were out as I made my way to and from the top of Black Spout. Definitely very different conditions from down in the glens.

A look over the corrie rim, some reasonable depth developing.
