Glencoe is absolutely wonderful at the moment. The sun is shining on the snow, the sheets of rain then pass over, the sun is out again, the wind is gusting to force 9 at sea level, then there is a calm, and once more a wall of water appears in the distance but before that the sun is shining on the snow.
What a place!
Just had this e-mail from our guest last week.
Just to let you know John, we had a great time. We needed to come home today for family reasons, but our 4 days were spent doing some great walking. We managed one Munroe on Saturday, but it was difficult because of very icy conditions, so we kept to lower walks for the following 3 days. Quite spectacular walks in Glencoe, and a fair amount of snow above around 600m. Weather very kind.
We aim to return to the area to tackle the mountains without the ice some time in the future - they certainly deserve a return visit.
We've been busy adding new pages and revising old ones to our cottage website. If we post the links here, then this helps Google to "see" the new pages.
