The Ptarmigan Restaurant
Easter Sunday, three days after the Spring Equinox. I'd brought my sunglasses, as I do every year. I needed them once in 1989. Global warming, pah!

22 years ago almost to the day on 20 March 1986. A wind gust of 278 km/h (173 mph) was recorded, the highest ever recorded in the United Kingdom. The only time I ever skied uphill.

If you're likely to be far from a toilet why not get yourself some biodegradeable poo bags and a pot to piss in:

If you plan to spend a day out on the hills - you need to know how to go! A pioneering project has been launched at CairnGorm Mountain to manage the increasing amount of human waste left behind by winter walkers and climbers particularly those particpating in snow hole activities!
