This has to be a day in a million. No wind, bright blue sky and the tempeature hovering round zero, making for perfect winter hiking conditions and are about as rare as sighting arctic hares in the sahara. Walking up Ben Ledi is a gentle 3 hour hike under normal conditions, but in mid January with almost 2 ft of snow, it took a little longer. No matter, the views from the top were worth every step of the journey up and how we wished we had our skis to whiz down. Next time you see snow forecast for the hills of Scotland, don't delay, ferret out your hiking boots from the back of the cupboard and make haste to Ben Ledi. You won't regret it, if the sun comes out and the wind drops.
