Very cold easterly in Torridon
The wintry weather continues as a cold easterly wind and high pressure dominates keeping it generally dry and very cold in the mountains.
This weekend I was out with the University of Stirling Mountaineering Club. On Saturday I took a team up on to Creag Dhubh at the East end of the Beinn Eighe massif. We had hoped to traverse the Black Carls but with a seriously strong and blustery wind we thought better of it and descended the East ridge back into Allt a' Chuirn. On Sunday we headed up into Coire an Laoigh on the South side of Spidean Coire nan Clach where we did some winter skills.
There are some photos here: Some Facebook photos. I was working as the St John Scotland Mountain Safety Instructor this weekend.
