The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.
This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
Most people reading this blog will already know about potential restrictions to both Glen Muick and the Linn of Dee. Basically if you are heading to Lochnagar or Ben McDui I’d suggest you arrive at the car parks early.
This info from Walkhighlands –
