Would normally be out and about in the highlands at this time of year, but its going to be -12C tonight in Braemar, so feel lucky we are at a cosy -8C tonight here in the S of Scotland!

I once went camping in Braemar when it got to -17C - needless to say we spent a lot of the night sleeping in the car!

The worst it has been here that I can remember is -16c, it was so cold and crisp you did not feel it.

I've slept in a roof tent at -11 and was snug as a bug. That was at Loch Lomond. I would love to be in the Cairngorms now though at -12. Whether in a tent or camper. With the right gear on it's not cold.

We should be in Scotland now, we normally go in January. Hopefully we shall be out of this before too long, but who knows?
