Well that’s the high pressure system sliding away to the South, allowing weather systems out in the Atlantic to move in. After a bright start early this morning, the cloud rolled in fairly quickly to cover the summits. It was still very cold with a significant wind chill effect. The weather is set to become more unsettled next week with stronger winds, a fluctuating freezing level and some precipitation.  It was fantastic while it lasted. Very uninspired photography today ….

Low cloud rolled in very quickly this morning in the Cairngorms.


Looking North from Carn Crom towards Derry Cairngorm.


Exposed locations below 900m holding very little snow. Descending off Carn Crom.
