Unfortunately got half way up my meandering wander on the east slope, and realised the battery for my Nikon was well and truly dead. Beautifully crisp snow, sunshine, very little wind, and all the tributaries running past the pipeline into Loch Droma were mostly frozen so I managed to keep my feet dry for the entire day! The views from the top are stunning, but then again, aren't they always no matter the mountain? :wink: Saw a few deer, and also found lots of mountain hare (I presume?) footprints, zig-zagging and looping all over the place.
