Love this hill, a great walk and nice views. Where's all the snow though... Are we going to be hit with a white February?

Was a strange one, there was far more snow on Ben Tirran on Sunday. Maybe it's just going to be a mild winter

We were in Glen Tanar today and the surrounding hills to the south-west (Mt Keen way) were white and you could see Ben Avon coming in and out of the clouds in its winter coat, but everything else looks like Autumn.
