Stayed in 2 Challets in Aviemore, one of which was found (by the owners) to have a mysterious stain on the carpet when we left.

Lots of lovely snow, and the first 'Yeti tripple jump' competition, which is pretty much like at the Olympics except that it's downhill through deep snow. Various attempts were made at expeditions into the Cairgorm interior, one morning we spent 3 hours sheltering in the ski carpark cafe in torrential rain, then it cleared to bright sun as forecast, we set off up towards the plateau over fields of ice, buffeted by ferocious gusts. Then it started to snow, as we got higher it mysteriously turned to rain, then, once we were thoroughly soaked, back to snow, and we gave up, wibbled out and slunk back to the cafe to ring for someone to come and pick us up. Later heard that Cairngorm weather station had recorded 108mph winds that day.

Next attempt at an expedition worked, setting of at 4.30am from the caringorm cafe, first light as we reached the plateau, an endless icefield blazing in the sun.

Martyn Wakeman (aka Wibble) and Steve Carter (aka Carter the unstoppable bagging machine) on the Ben Macdui plateau................ By Ben Macdui summit it had whited out, and we had to count steps on a bearing to hit the nearest identifiable feature, a tiny lochan 750m away. Stayed in Corrour bothy for the night before walking out over the Braeraich range in more glorious sunshine.
