The sunny walk in to Lochnagar

Cold, windy and dry in the southern Cairngorms

I was working at Lochnagar this weekend with the Glasgow Uni Mountaineering Club.

There was a brisk NW wind on Saturday that got stronger and swung around to the SW today. There was plenty of sunshine yesterday and great views both days with no precipitation. I was teaching winter skills on both days with some students from the club.
