Well, I don't see a problem there. The place is a half-hour drive plus a two-hour climb from where I am at the moment. And it will be looking exactly the same at this time of year. Come to think of it, I might have made a trip there instead of wasting my time at the computer.
My home is in Aberdeenshire, about an hour from the beautiful Cairngorms. But I'm currently living in St Andrews for university, which is pretty, but doesn't match the amazing landscapes of the Highlands! I wish I could visit them more often for photography...!
Oh, I know that area quite well. And the Cairngorms, obviously. And I have been to St Andrews, so I know what you're talking about. It's always the lack of time, isn't it? There's always something more urgent you have to do...
Actually, it's the eaves of another building, a weather station. That's where I hid from the wind. As to the conditions, it seems lke this is the only time when the mountain is not crowded with hikers. It being the highest peak of the range, etc., it's always crowded. Unless, of course, the weather keeps them couch potatoes at home.
