Sadly no hills still got that cough but enjoy them if out. Winter is back !

Winter is back with snow and cold temperatures everywhere. There is something about the winter days, the light and the clearness of a cold day is so special. I love this time of year.

I should have been out over the weekend but my bronchial cough is back and a lot worse at night. I wake regularly with fits of coughing . So no hills till it sorts out I see the Doctor on Tuesday.

The Moray Club are out on a Bus meet to Laggan but sadly I will not be with them. I am hearing that the hills are stunning and the paths icy so be careful it’s easy to slip. Crampons are an essential in winter especially if coming of in the dark or failing light. It’s worth getting out on the ice as they take a bit of getting used to . Pointless having crampons and not using them! It’s well worth practising in a safe area .
