OK since the demise the front point website, there doesn't seem to be a central resourse that I know of for links to the various winter reports blogs. It would be great if we could create a thread with them all listed on for future reference.

I'll kick it off with these:

I've created a google reader list with all the blogs linked - helps me look at them through work ;) This is really worthwhile I think.

I've found from my new blog that if you have a blog account you can follow them through there aswell.

MWIS has a list of conditions blogs under 'Mountain Blogs' on the left.

Thanks for that above list, there's some there I haven't seen

The best by far for the more interesting things that go on is

http://www.scottishwinter.com/

That is where i send some of my intersting things ocasionally. I didn't see much point in doing my own blog anymore as there are a lot of other people doing them now.
All the good ones are linked on the right hand side of that page if you want info on the whats going on in the honey pot areas (which isnt in Scottish Winter's purview)

Hope this helps

I think that you missed
http://skyeguides.tumblr.com/
Which is useful as it focuses just on Skye which is 'in' a lot more that you would think and is updated more than most.

if you use Twitter I set up @scotwinter, which automatically pumps out links to updates on many of the blogs mentioned above.

In reply to chris_s: Your Twitter feed is great Chris, it's definitely taken over from The Frontpoint as the best way of keeping in touch with many blogs. Worth setting up an account for this alone.
