The slow group enjoyed a lovely snowy run around the Braid Hills. The snow eased off after a while and the view from the summit over to the white Pentland Hills was marvellous. We didn’t need our head torches (just on the night I’d remembered to bring mine). The gritters’ HQ was all lit up as we slipped along the metal fence on the wrong side of the burn, but I guess they were all out gritting the roads. Many thanks to Willie for leading a great run (and giving us his butterfly impersonation in the snow!).
||Speed of light snow
Tonight’s run was inspired by an upcoming reunion of SOL leaders and the light snow. So it was straight from KB to the top of Salisbury Crags (A), back along the mid line (C) before heading up to Whinnie Hill (H).
This was all good running on the soft snow with a little bit of sliding. Then it was on to the tourist trail: Holyrood, Calton Hill, National Gallery, The Castle, the Grassmarket and The Meadows taking in a few flights of steps on the way.
