Winter Wonderland
On a good day Scotland really does rival the Alps - this was a perfect walk in - blue skies, light winds, fluffy snow, and not another sinner in sight. Perfect winter walking conditions.
Lurchers Crag and the Lairig Ghru
This was one of the most perfect, and Alpine-like winter climbing experiences one could hope for in Scotland - it was one fine day amongst many less so, as such the crag was swamped with other climbers and it was difficult to get a route to ourselves - I've been assured this isn't always the case.

Lower down in the valley is the Lairig Ghru - a 19-mile long trail that runs from Coylumbridge, just outside Aviemore, to Braemar, on the other side of the Cairngorm Mountains. Although the walking is relatively straightforward and the paths well-laid - the route is long, exposed, and remote in places - it's quite a serious undertaking, but very much worth the effort!
