A very cold but stunningly beautiful day. Full snow cover from the road side – thinner on wind exposed West aspects. Skis are still the best way to travel: Only one walker seen today and they were sinking in fairly deep in places. Remaining very cold for the week therefore a slow rate of consolidation expected.

Full cover from Glas Maol to Cairn of Claise. A group near the summit.


From White Brae, Glas Maol to Creag Caorach, Druim Mor above Caenlochan Glen.


Distant views to the main Cairngorms.


Lots of wind features (and the odd buried Stegosaurus ) out there…
