"The wind in Scotland can be so strong that it blows the skins off your skis" Not the most reassuring comment from one of our guides, Alex, as we embarked and some ski touring in the Cairngorms. Hope you enjoy this photo gallery of our trip. 

 Skinning up Lurcher's Gully. The spindrift racing past makes the mountain feel like it has turned into a raging river.
