Cold snaps aren't unusual in May in the Scottish mountains and we are in the grip of one just now; we are also in lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic, so access to the hills is off limits. Here I remember a ski tour in stunning snow and weather conditions in the Cairngorms in May 2012 when we were able to get out and about.
Cairngorm Snow and Sun – February 2010 (10 Years Ago!)
Where does time go? Photos from Cairngorm 10 years ago, 12th February 2010, on a day with an inversion, stunning snow and blue skies on the mountain tops.
Cairngorm October Snow and Sunset
An October walk in the Cairngorm mountains, fresh autumn snow on the peaks and spectacular waterfalls; over the Cairngorm plateau and along the shores of Loch Avon, returning via the summit of Cairngorm for sunset. See the route and photos and read about it here.
