Wonderful walk to a wintry Ben Macdui - and the Anson Crash - Black ice and verglas.

I really enjoyed my walk in Strathfarrar on Friday and felt up for a longer wander on Sunday. I watched the MWIS ( Mountain Weather Information Service) and Sunday the winds seemed to have eased so it was a reasonable start from home and I picked up Bernie from Forres. 1,270 more words
