I am in Scotland.
When I came here last September, the weather was like this
When I came back in March, the weather was like this,
When I got here on Monday, the weather was like this,
and on Tuesday, like this
and Wednesday, like this
I can't believe my luck :o)
I started the week with Braeriach, reaching the summit five hours after getting off the train. The next day I took a leisurely stroll round the tops of Cairngorm's northern corries with a mate. On Wednesday I climbed Beinn Mheadhoin (my no.1 target for 2011). Yesterday, I walked over the Moor of Feshie to Loch an Eilean, but forgot my camera. Gutted.
Today I was going to climb Cairn Toul from Glen Feshie, but it's gusting 60mph with patchy showers and cloud on the tops. Weather situation now normal.
It's time for a day in the coffee shop with my book.
Addendum: by lunchtime, the tops were clear and from my seat in the coffee shop, I was being summoned up Sgòran Shu Mor.
I didn't set off until 3.30pm, but had six fantastic hours on the Glen Feshie ridge.
This is Loch Einich from the summit of Sgor Gaoith, 2,000' above (in a force 7 gale):
