Very cold on the tops today, likely to be colder again tomorrow. Old snow is very firm, often with a short run out. Slips and trips will have serious consequences.


The main crags of Lochnagar.


The Raeburns/Black Spout area.


Descending from the plateau to the Col. Lots of verglas around and very slippy underfoot.


Looking towards Corrie Ciche on Beinn a Bhuird.


Ben Avon Tors. The highest one is 1171 metres.


A message of hope from Braemar Castle.
