Outside over the last few days. Not bad for November.

Variety is the spice of life, they say! I think they, are correct. The last week or so has been cold and crisp. Mostly wintry in the hills and dry at sea level. I have been working all over Scotland recently and the landscape has been as varied as the work. Here are a few photos to illustrate the diverse beauty and the ever changing landscape Scotland has to offer. Folk have been out climbing, mixed winter routes on Ben Cruachan, new routes on Ben Alder, exploring the ridges of Ben Nevis and in fact doing lots on lot's of Ben's. Others have been ski touring, rock climbing and sea kayaking. With high pressure dominating the outdoors has been everyone's oyster. It looks like the weather may warm up a little this week but that is normal for this time of the year. Hebridean Pursuits courses and winter work is well under way and we have been so blessed with the perfect conditions. Long may it last.

High pressure days you can't beat in Scotland at this time of the year.

The Mamores today, Monday.
