We are currently “sitting-out” some particularly rough weather wild camping just north of the Pass of Drumochter. For many of you the only time you’ll hear about the Pass of Drumochter, through which the main A9 arterial road north from Perth to Inverness passes, is on the traffic reports when we are informed that is closed due to snow (and this happens reasonably often). The “summit” of Drumochter is at 465m.
Well, tonight we’re just off the A9 at Drumochter in some wild windy weather … and it’s snowing outside! I’ve wound down the steadies on the ‘van, but it is still being buffeted by the gale force winds. The Met Office suggests that the winds are reaching storm force in places locally!
We would be foolish to venture up onto the hills in this sort of weather so we’ll just have to sit it out and grab our chances to bag some more Munros as and when the opportunities present themselves.
