BRAERIACH, WET, WINDY, WARM
It was a wet day up on Braeriach, despite a reasonable forecast for the afternoon. A strong headwind cycling into Loch Einich eased by the time I was up in Coire Dhondail. Another very mild day, mostly just wearing baselayer and waterproofs. The weather forecast hinted at some wet snow above 1000m but it was just rain on the tops. Not much to see from that point upwards. The photos today may have been better if I was faster getting my camera out for the pure white Mountain Hare or the lone Stag in the coire. So instead just a few gloomy, damp shots!
