Glorious sunshine

Sometimes, the best weather forecast is looking out of the car/house

window. Having done so this morning, tentative plans for other areas were shelved, and instead I opted to stay in the sunshine by having a quick yomp over the Kincardine hills. It was lovely to feel the sun beating onto the face today, a real change from the recent greyness. A chill wind to remind us it's November, but no snow of note yet unfortunately, though there was a heavy frost in places this morning. More of this weather please!

First taste of winter

Very changeable weather this week, at times mild then very cold, as the winds switched round from different directions. Out on the Cairngorms plateau mid week there was a suprising amount of new soft snow, mid calf drifts in places. Much will now have gone in the milder temperatures of the last few days but a definite taste of things to come. Getting excited for more snowy adventures to come soon with any luck......

Winter is coming

Cold today up high with a very strong wind. Much nicer down in the shelter of the pines. Colder weather forecast for the coming week, with perhaps some more sprinkles of snow on the tops.....
