At last! Some good weather to speak of…
I've been lucky that a 3 day respite from the rain has coincided with my week long break from work, so I've been very busy having fun in the hills since wednesday. There's still been quite a few heavy rain and snow showers so it's been hillwalking, not climbing weather. My friend John and I finally got around to doing Lochnagar on wednesday - a nice walk and a landmark for John, leaving him only 30 Munros left to do.

And then yesterday I walked the "White Mounth" circuit above Loch Muick in the Eastern Cairngorms - a long (18 mile) but easy walk over 4 Munros with good views of the main Cairngorm plateau.

56 miles of hillwalking and 8 Munros in the last 7 days…it's been a good week!
