Fresh Snow in the Cairngorms

After three days of cold, showery weather with a brisk north wind, night frosts and hints of hail and sleet in the air last night more prolonged rain set in, rain that was snow above about 500 metres. The clouds lifted today to reveal the mountains clad in white again. Winter is not yet over in the Cairngorms.

  1. Great photographs Chris - it's really whetting our appetite for 'The Cairngorms in Winter'.

  2. Many thanks Chris, am hoping this year's Challenge crowd read and digest!

  3. We will see John as it could all melt next week. But if its looking bad then axe and spikes will be packed.
