Wild winter weather in Glen Shiel

I was over on the west coast in Glen Shiel this weekend.

On Saturday we had a decent day on the hil before the the weather got bad as Storm Ciara arrived. On Sunday it was super windy and wet and only really snowed above 600m. We had an adventurous attempt on a Graham called Biod an Fhithich

Winter Skills in Glencoe

I was working with the Edinburgh University Mountaineering Club in Glencoe this weekend.

Saturday started very wet and windy and not that cold. Fortunately later the day the temperature dropped and by Saturday night it was snowing on the hills. On Sunday there were a lot of snow showers on a southerly breeze.
