Looking back.

31st December 2021

I’d been thinking about Hogmanay when out today, how good or how bad some have been? Great to see our colleagues in Lochaber had actually done their blog on years gone by. So a retro look at the last few years.

We’ve got the January storms to look forward to, starting tomorrow!

Hutchinson Hut 31/12/13 Snowy and rather wild.

    Very interesting to see Hogmanay conditions through the years so I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised with current conditions but let’s hope it gets better sooner rather than later! Appreciating the blog as usual and hope we bump into one another on the hill. All the best for 2022. Roger
