Beinn Dearg, North Scotland - a missed opportunty

We headed further north hoping to climb Emerald Gully IV.4 but I woosed out. A blister is coming and I have winter clients arriving in 2 days so need to be careful, also we heard warnings of gullys full of snow and  the recent news of avalanches. So we walked in optimistically but I felt in need of a rest and we turned around.

We had great views of a very white An Teallach, but this is a picture of todays objective, Beinn Dearg (not reached... this time)
We headed back south, breaking the journey for a nice lunch at the Mountain Cafe Aviemore 
There's loads of snow around and a few days ago Aviemore was snowed in with Tesco's running out of some foods.

More blue sky!
