Winter walking Scotland
After such a good winter in Scotland the winter conditions are proving resilient to the recent high temperatures - with heavy snowfall on tuesday night and with some cooler temps. the climbing has improved again( Ben Nevis is positively arctic on top ) . Easter traditionally has been a good time to visit - with longer days, more settled weather, and old snow . The long trip home, however, kind of signals a change, with ice axes put away and rock boots brought out - roll on the spring !
