I’ve been busy over last week making use of the typical Scottish conditions to fit in some long hill days and complete a BASP First Aid course.

Winter truly returned to the West Coast this weekend with snow down to sea level for only the second time this season I believe. It has left enormous amounts of fresh powder over the hills which is being transported and whipped around by the fluctuating winds we have come accustomed to this year. Today was only my second ‘blue sky day’ this year, so Duncan, James and I slogged up Aonach Mor and Aonach Beag in strengthening winds to be rewarded with fantastic views for as far as the eye can see.

Many cool wind features about today. These flumes are being swept up the crags on the East Face

    Great pics Steve – I’m gutted that I’ve missed the whole winter season. Never mind, there is always next year
