For those of you who know the Clachaig (posted by James)

Sgurr nam Fiannaidh and Clachaig Gully glowing in the moonlight

A couple of photos of interest for those of you who know Glencoe's mad and wonderful Clachaig Inn.

Half a foot of snow a few days ago has caused all sorts of chaos, but as always it has positives!

I know it sounds clich├ęd, but the snow really has transformed the Clachaig into a picture-postcard winter wonderland. Clear skies and a bright moon have made for moonlit hillsides glowing through the dark, and it has been truly magical to walk around at night and take it all in.

The atmosphere inside the pub can be simply magical at this time of year - the roaring fire and candles, and tired winter climbers sharing stories, laughter and warmth.

Alex and I are off to England for Christmas until the 27th, but we'll be back in time for the cheerful mayhem and madness of a Scottish Hogmanay.
