This weekend in Drumochter pass the tops of the Munros had a decent winter coat. Some sunshine and good views outwith the mist and cloud but in the cloud we had some good white-out nav conditions. It was cold in the snow showers that came in on the easterly wind.
I was out with the Aberdeen University Wilderness and Expedition Medicine Society this weekend. On Saturday we climbed Meall Chuaich and on Sunday we climbed at Geal-charn and A'Mharconaich. There are some Facebook photos here: Some Facebook photos.

I was over in Glen Sheil this weekend working with The Edinburgh University Hill Walking Club. On Saturday we climbed Sgurr Mhic Bharraich. this trackless corbett above Ratagan bealach gave some great ground for navigating and route finding. On Sunday we headed over Loch Duich to climb Sgurr an Airgid which seems to be a much more popular hill to climb with a good track to the top.
