Great start to the New Year

Today was my first day back at work after the festive season and we started the New Year off with a super day on the Ben. I was guiding Roisin and Alan on the Mountain Track. Some fresh snow down to 450m saw the hill looking nice and wintry and the pair made short work up to the Red Burn. The Zig Zags were still pretty clear to follow though there was a fair amount of fresh snow giving the legs a good workout. Finally, we were treated to some stunning views from the summit. There was some rime starting to form on some of the higher rocks but all of it looked pretty fresh from last night. What a great way to start 2015 and with superb company from Roisin and Alan!
