Highlands have a warm place in my heart. Every time I go there, my eyes are wide open from amazement, my mind just cannot digest and believe how beautiful nature in Scotland is! Yep, it can rain for days and if sun is out – consider yourself as a very lucky person!
This time it was winter skills course what dragged me to Scotland, finally decided it’s time to get to know those big beauties better and plus, I really, really want to ice climb outside, not just in a massive freezer, nice too, just not quite the same… Fingers crossed for good ice climbing conditions in March and April.
First day in Scotland was quite disappointing – sunny, green, no sign of winter anywhere! Not even on Munros!!! I think I have never checked weather forecast so much as I did the last week for 2 days, hoping for at least few snowflakes to drop and stay on mountains and for my course not to be cancelled. Wish came true. There was no snow down but on top of Munros was a proper winter! Felt like the happiest person on earth, smile never left my face during those 2 days of course.
My plan this year is to go on adventures outside, not just hiking, need to do some ice climbing and rock climbing outside too, too much time spent indoors. Many people won’t like my words to follow – hopefully, weather will stay cold for longer, so many fun things to do in winter!
