Creag Meagaidh winterish

Lucy writes: We are enjoying settling in to our base up near Fort William and although winter is a little sparse at the moment, we've been seeking it out up high.  Today Wally and I set off with friend Jen for Creag Meagaidh. With cold firm snow patches, its in very friendly condition for hill walkers at the moment, with none of the frequent avalanche hazard in The Window.

 Not much snow in The Window!

It was cold and beautiful up on the Plateau. A chilly wind kept everyone moving to the summit. We descended via Puist Coire Ardair and cut steps on several snow patches on the way down.
