From Lochaber MRT
“Anyone heading onto the mountains this weekend please make sure that you are properly equipped for winter and be able to navigate and know how to use the gear. Ice axes and crampons are essential – the rubber grannie grippers are no use for mountaineering. Don’t depend on phone apps.

Last night also on Lochaber MRT.
