What's it like for biking...all rideable?...many walkers this time of year? Nice covering of snow
down South over the weekend for sliding your tyres about on. Did make following those crappy man
made trails that twist and turn through the trees a bit hard to follow though.

Got to agree, not much snow but you had the "other" good weather. I'm sitting here planing
tomorrows trip, going by the forecasts the weather is changing again, snow forecast for both east
and west highlands above 1200', gusts of up to 70mph at tops.(Met Office) I gather a few forecasts
and work out where to go depending on time etc, whether I'm driving up tonight or not etc. This
site (again) http://www.onlineweather.com/v4/uk/mountain/index.html gives Lochnagar gusts up to
114mph, while Cairngorms are only expecting 34mph????? It's forecast that way before, they must be
doing something wrong. I'll wait until after 3pm and have a look at Geoff Monks forecast, that's
the one I tend to trust.

Looks like eastern highlands for less severe weather?
