In reply to Russell Lovett:
I'm afraid I can't say whether it will be in condition, but after five days of sub zero conditions and another dump tomorrow/sat it may be worth a look. I rang up the College Valley estate yesterday to ask about access - the road down is like an ice rink so 4 by 4 or chains would be sensible to get to the car park I reckon. They wouldn't be prepared to sell permits to drive to the far end (due to health and safety!) but you might be able to persuade them if you have a 4x4 though.

Did you make it to Bizzle in the end? Planning to head up this Sunday so wondering what nick it was in. With all the snow plus the plummeting temperature was reckoning there should be no reason to doubt it'll be in.

In the light of Saturday's tragic events in Glencoe it is worth reminding anyone planning a trip to the Bizzle burn that it is a notorious avalanche black spot and extreme care should be taken there after heavy snow.
