Inside and outside this week.

This week has been mixed for conditions in the hills. I have been working on a variety of skills courses ranging from lead climbing training to summer mountain leader navigation refresher skills. A dusting of fresh snow lies on the tops from Glencoe though to the east. It was really warm yesterday at 600m but the northerly wind has taken a grip and it feels a wee bit cooler again. The word on the street is that it will get colder again next week, a good 50 / 50 bet this time of the year. It would be welcome as HPL winter courses start on the 9th of December so some snow would be very welcome. November has gone very quickly but it has been one of the most beautiful Novembers I can remember in the Scottish landscape.
