Snowing hard at Gaskbeg today – torrential rain, and flooding yesterday as all the snow melts! and then today back to snow again! – wish it would make up its mind.
For guests arriving this week check the roads before you travel, traffic Scotland is quite a good website to check and it has cameras so you can see what the road conditions are like, Drummochter North (pictured) is a good one to check, its just before you turn off at Dalwhinne. If you are worried at all keep going on the A9 until Newtonmore and then take the Laggan road – its not much of a detour.(http://trafficscotland.org/livetrafficcameras/)
Please get in touch if you have any concerns at all.

Took this picture of Calum just up the back above the farm on Christmas day, I think it is a ‘white rainbow’. I have never seen one before, have any of you?

Well if the weather carries on the way it is going it could be a very white Christmas but knowing scottish weather it could all be gone by Monday!!
The picture below was taken today and shows a very wintery Bail nan Cnoc, which still has availability for Christmas at a very good rate, just email or phone for details.

Driving back from Dalwhinnie last night and the temperature gauge in the car was saying 28c and there was still a large patch of snow on the Dalwhinnie hills. Had to take a photo as it might not be there for much longer!!

We have had some fantastic weather recently and have even managed a few swims in the River Spey which were lovely, could not believe how warm the water was!! All the silage is made and most of the sheep are clipped. The photos below are of Pat one of our old sheep dogs having a wee rest, and newly clipped ewes with their lambs on their the way to the hill.

Increase temperatures yesterday up to about 7 or 8 degrees warmest since October so the snow has started to melt bringing lots of water down the Spey, flooding half our low ground fields.
Dont worry about the ski-ing, still heaps on Cairngorm – www.cairngormmountain.org – and the Nevis Range -snowsports.nevisrange.co.uk -.

A cold quiet day today thank goodness after yesterdays storm, we faired no too bad just a couple of trees down. Have not heard wind like that for a long time thought the roof was going to come off the house!
