Topic - Winter conditions on the Cairngorms

Kevin Woods - on 07 Nov 2012
I'm looking for any info on the general conditions to be expected in the Gorms in winter. Martin Moran's Scottish Winter Mountains helps, and I'm trying to work out how to interpret the Cairngorm weather station information. I must be missing something on the site since this is what I'm finding: http://cairngormweather.eps.hw.ac.uk/2004/data2004.txt Hmm?!

I'm looking stats, stories, etc on conditions on the plateau in winter relevant to spending about five days linking up the tops.

How often do high pressures come along in January or February, and how long do they typically last? Any other info relating to winter will be fantastic. The Cairngorm summit station info would be great if I could work out how to access it??

Thanks
