A wild Lochnagar.

It was a rather wild day on Lochnagar today. Looking fairly benign this morning the winds did strengthen as forecast and by the end of the afternoon the walkers we saw out had definitely  earned their Christmas dinner!


Anyway, Merry Christmas to you all, we hope you are enjoying the day.


Lochnagar crags this morning. Generally thin cover on all aspects.


Crossing the col towards the Corrie.


The West side of Lochnagar’s crags. The summit is just peaking through in the background.


Lots of drifting by afternoon. Sam battling her way down from the Col…….time to get Christmas dinner on!
