What a difference a day makes!
Complete change from yesterday! Woke to snow down to 200m and windy weather. Gill and I took Gordon to the East Ridge of Beinn a' Chaorainn. The walk in through the forest showed us just how much fresh snow had fallen overnight and th winds grew steadily stronger until we reached the summit. At the top the wind circled like a pack of angry dogs, one minute rushing at us from one side and the next from a totally different direction. I reckon MWIS was right on the money and we were knocked over by 80mph gusts several times as we fled back down to the car as soon as we could. Wild! No pictures from half way up the ridge until back to the forest road as I was busy trying to stagger on a bearing on the plateau then tryin not to get knocked over on the descent!
