Another alternative to hillwalking day out on the snow..... an alpine start prior to work on Meall a' Bhuchaille.

Possibly the whitest blanket over the hills since 2010?....I recall the Alone on the great plateau from that time.
Mel and friend did a wee tour from Glenmore over Cairngorm, A' Choinneach, Bynack More and with a finish up and over Meall a' Bhuachaille to get back to Glenmore.
