An overnight temperature of -7C ensured the hard frost continued. Frost on frost in fact as the new frost extended the old. No sunshine on Boxing Day meant no melting of the frost anywhere. On pools and puddles the ice grows thicker. Whilst strands of low cloud drifted in the valleys the dense mist of yesterday was gone and the high clouds were well above the mountains, which stood out across Strathspey in the flat light. The birch trees were a ghostly white, the bare branches coated with frost.
