At the start of this year, I was keen to get out to ascend a small hill before
going back to work.
I decided to take the 4x4 out to see how it would cope in the snow.
Carole and Becky came with me for the drive but not for the hill

the route undertaken
I managed to get the car just off the road at the start of the walk.

Seriously deep snow:
The snow was at least knee-deep the whole way. I broke trail with Beinn following behind me.

Track through forest:
Normally Beinn is really fast on the hill. The snow was a bit too deep for him
though on this walk.
Beinn struggling to keep up:
The walk was thankfully a short one and we did both make it to the summit.

The return to the car was a bit easier as we could use the in-bound trail.
On getting back to the car we stopped round the corner at the Califer viewpoint
before heading home.

I re-did Burgiehill today with Carole, Becky and Beinn. Becky's 17th Marilyn.
A few photos from walk - definitely easier without deep snow.
