Music from Hamburg ..a rebroadcast...and the traditional concert from the posh looking Hall in Vienna both with much of the Strauss family's output to entertain us....and more from Europe through the telephone from my wife's relatives in France.
After lunch I set out from the Wildlife Park entrance to walk out to An Suidhe the wee hill above Loch Insh and Kincraig.
Iced up tracks and a search for softer snow to walk on and finally some breakable crust on the final slope. Lots of bird life both visible and from sounds in the plantations. A few deer heading for a plantation as the light was fading.
Nice viewpoint from the summit area although the higher Sgoran group of hills were screened by low cloud.

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.
