A wild day on the hill

6th February 2017

A fairly blustery day on Ben Nevis today in the strong South-Easterly wind. It proved reasonably challenging getting as far as the CIC hut due to strong wind gusts and spindrift!

Some happy Ptarmigan! Can you spot all 3?

      After a fair bit of discussion amongst the SAIS forecasters, we also came to the conclusion there were 5 Ptarmigan.
      Well Done.
