Winter in Scotland, just the best!

Back country Glencoe, 'powder' days like these are rare but when they happen, there is no where like the west coast.
Donald King on Central Gully, Sgorr Bhan above Ballachulish. A fine route and so quiet! We first did it not really knowing what was up there and we found a gem!

Andy in Central gully, a great place to be high above the road. [photo d king]

Spring time on Ben Nevis is often the best time for winter climbing. Andy looking back after doing Observatory ridge.

Andy guiding on Tower Ridge, tower gap in great condition.

Heading out across the Cairngorm plateaux for a classic tour.

High up in the Mamores 'bagging' Munros.

Ben More on the island of Mull in January. On the horizon you can see Coll and Tiree.

Whilst we wait for the temperature to drop again, here are a few images of Scotland in winter from last year. The variety of environments and conditions are what makes the whole experience just so unique! I am sitting in the office looking out over the Sound of Mull today, these memories make the low cloud and drizzle seem not to bad!
