14th December 2019
Another cloudy day but with slightly more visibility than yesterday. Quite chilly – minus three degrees centigrade at 1000 metres with a bitter wind. The snow cover is superficial with some deeper deposits around corrie rims and at the tops of gullies. The burn crossings were ‘interesting’ today with a covering of verglas over all the rocks – I opted for the safe option of using the rocks that were just under the water – slightly damp feet but better than the certain full body immersion that would have occurred if I’d tried to use the ice covered boulders that were just above the surface! There is ice on the paths as well.
There is a little uncertainty over snow amounts tomorrow – Areas East of Lochnagar should be mainly dry but there is potential for maybe 5-10 cm on the hills West of Glenshee. Any new deposits will drift in the fresh Westerly winds so fresh accumulations will start to form in some locations.
Not a great day for photography – cloud base at 900 metres and flat light – but there’s a small selection of photos below.
