Glencoe, Wednesday 11th February

Took a day off work, and what a day! I’d been watching the weather and although Glencoe had not received the amount of snow the rest of the country had recently been dealt with, I’d been watching the forecast and it was set to be bluebird. The carpark was busy but I was soon up there with my pre-paid ticket. The snow was quite crispy and a few patches off ice were there to keep you on your toes. There was not a cloud in the sky and temperatures were low, about -4. I was on my own so got the whole area covered apart from the flypaper which was closed. So that left me shattered and managed to head down, belly full just before 3.00 and before it got dark.
