What to do when its not worth heading into the hills
The trip had been planned for ages, a winter excursion to go play in the Fannichs. We'd looked at routes that limited our chances of being continually waist deep in snow but unfortunately the weather decided it didn't like our plan.
We were staying at Braemore Square Country House just round the corner from Corrieshalloch Gorge. Time to go see if there were any frozen bits left.

That's the A835 just above this waterfall

We spent an enjoyable hour ooing and aaaing at this fantastic sight but the rain was on again so it was back in the car for a wee drive to see if there was any snow left in the far north west. We didn't find a huge amount but we got some nice views.
What we did find though was that the Lochinver Pie Shop was closed - disaster!!! Had to settle for a Fry's Chocolate Cream instead.
