A lovely sunny but extremely cold day - especially when the wind got up around mid-day. Last night Aviemore was the coldest place in the UK with a low of -18.4 See http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/7878234.stm
A lot of cars seem to be either breaking down and or blocking roads due to the cold weather and or stupidity...!
Walking anywhere in the Cairngorms is still very arduous though we manage to find good hard neve for step cutting, crampons and belays underneath the soft slab in Coire Cas. At least we were following other groups tracks rather than trail breaking today! The skiing throughout the Cairngorms looks fantastic.
