Having fun in the Snow in Strathspey, Scotland.

New snow, driven by a brisk wind, has been falling throughout the Cairngorms National Park since early this morning. Sadly Lecht Ski Centre still has insufficient cover for snowsports but hopefully this latest snow will enable runs to be opened for Sunday  Upper parts of Cairngorm Mountain are presently closed due to the strong winds but there is good skiing and boarding to be had on the Travers & Coire Cas, including the Gun Barrel which has been well filled through this season thanks to the introduction of a snow canon at that location.

All along Speyside people are out taking advantage of and enjoying the variety of outdoor activities available in this beautiful part of the world ~ Strathspey looking particularly picturesque today ~ as if dusted with icing sugar. Here in Newtonmore, walkers are out and about on the wonderful Wildcat Trail ~ the excellent circular path around the perimeter of the village and children of all ages are out playing and having fun in the snow.
