Well I knew the chances of getting this done due to the snow were not too good. Guess what, I didn`t get it done.

I tried to get accross to Meggethead but the snow plow had only just stopped at the begging of the road from the area of Dollar Law, leaving a wall of snow in my path.

I had my son and the dog so decided to trek up Dollar Law and along to Broad Law.

As I said before, didn`t happen. The snow drift were too deep for my laddie and by the time we got to the summit of Dollar Law it was snowing, so before we were snowed in, we headed back to the car. Got some nice photos though. I`ll head back here in the better weather, there are a lot of hills in the area and St Mary`s Loch and The Grey Mairs Tale not too far away.
Snow Angels, I didn`t do it too, honest.....
