Excellent weather forecast from the MET office - full sun, little wind, no cloud, <5% chance of precipitation. Didn't work out that way in the western highlands - solid low cloud, cold wind at the summit, no sun other than a very thin band on the horizon. Set off in the dark with headtorch aiming to be high for the sunrise which didn't materialise. Ah well, you win some, you lose some. On the way down, met two other WHers (one of whom was "Craig") - stopped for a chat with them. Back home in time for lunch.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
