Hi all.

Just back from a lovely walk. One of those magical Winter's days, sunny, cold, with a crispy frost.

Looks as though there is a fair bit of snow on the higher bits.

First drink of the day, I doubt it will be the last!

Fish pie in the oven, then a quiet night in. Hope Jools Holland has some good music on.

I used to be a big go outer on NYE, now I can't think of anything worse.

Have fun and take care.

I am surprised you recommend tar wash DHR. I have never seen this advised.

I spent a lovely NY's eve in Perth [ Scotland ] a few years ago. Along with prodigious consumption of Vodka and Irn Brew [ yes really ] first footing was performed, a few times. Not sure we were welcome.

Next day climbed Schiehallion, was not at all well.

Who's going to the gym in the new year.

Not a hill I know fairy.

Know and love the Ballachulish horseshoe and have been lucky enough to climb many of the Glencoe hills.

It is a great picture and sums up the true beauty of the Scottish hills. Long may you continue to climb them.

I think most people believe that sealants for cut tree branches, do more harm than good. That is certainly what the tree surgeon I use says.

Can I wish you all a very happy 2017, with abundant beauty and no pests.

May at least some of your wishes come true.

Thank you for your friendship and support in 2016, you are a bunch of amazing people.

I would also like to hope that some who have left the site this year, decide to come back again.

World peace would be nice, but that may be stretching things a bit.
