Down the A9 to Cairnryan

Early on the road to avoid the forecast snow...


View Northern Ireland by ferry; March 2013 on tiderace's travel map.

After a few hours dozing when I got home from my Night Shift, I set off down the A9 earlier than planned to try and avoid the snow which had been forecast. Luckily it wasn't too bad, although the hills around Drumochter Pass looked pretty good. The view to remote Ben Alder down Loch Ericht was particularly spectacular.

Of course, you pass Scotland's highest distillery at Dalwhinnie around the same time;

Having cleared the high ground, the snow disappeared apart from the high tops and the road was fine, if a bit tiresome, all the way through Glasgow into Ayrshire, and soon Arran could be seen with snow on the top of Goat Fell.
