January 2013 started mildly in the Highlands and we began to worry that our guests may miss out on snow (or more correctly leave the snowy south and come to the mild north!). However, with our first groups arriving the weather changed and we have had some magical days in snow and ice. Plus the best possible reason to find a nice warm pub at the end of the day!
The highlights for the first group varied for them individually but included;
- Photographing Red Deer in the Caledonian forest in a full on blizzard
- Filling the frame with Ptarmigan and Snow Bunting in the snowy Cairngroms
- The ultra confiding Mountain Hare that let us approach to 10 feet and then fell back to sleep!
With more folk arriving in the coming weeks we are looking forward to a fantastic sell out winter in 2013.
