Thank you it was cold, but another great experience. My last report from Creag Meagaidh ( today ) looks much warmer despite all the snow and ice there...

- ...a refreshing photo for the summer: no sweat, no boggy wetness and no any midges...that's the advantage of winter walks !!! View towards East from the very end of the summit plateau, you can imagine the C.M.D. and Aonachs behind
