Thought that I could get a bit of sun on the limbs today but it was mostly filtered.

campers down beside the loch....sometimes the sliding snow on the rock slab reaches the loch.

Was this used as an observatory in the past?

That was indeed me gaffr. It was good to meet you and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your day. I have to say I preferred the tranquil summit of Macdui as opposed to the relative madness of Cairn Gorm :D

It was a really good day for it and I was surprised at how much snow is left. Hopefully I see you up there again.
