We had a walk into Lochain today. There are a few crevasses appearing in the top sections of the Great Slab. It was a happening place for wild life, the Ptarmigans are changing into their summer plumage, here a male and female chase each other around the Corrie. Part of the reindeer herd were wandering about too, they came over to say hello which was great. This is the last blog for this season from us, see you next winter and thanks for all your support from North Cairngorm.

This is Coire an Lochain today. There is still a bit of ice around especially on the easy angled slabs, but we did notice that it was falling off in places. The snow is very spring like on the sunny slopes and still quite firm in the shade higher up. Lots of Ptarmigans were seen chasing each other around the corrie...it must be springtime.

Wow another stunning day in the Cairngorms.... It's never dull, these two Chinooks gave us a fabulous display of formation flying which was very impressive... Red Arrows eat your heart out!
The ski touring on the plateau is pretty nice; spring snow on a firm base.
