5 day forecast
It is clear to anyone that any day trips and activities need to be planned around the local weather forecast. Remember,they say “There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.”
Live Weather in Nethy Bridge
A neighbour has started his own Nethy Bridge weather station. You can see what is happening now in Nethy Bridge!
Please do not ask us when we have the best weather! This is Scotland – we can have some lovely weather and as we are in the shadow of the Cairngorms, we enjoy one of the lowest average rainfalls in Britain – but do not count on it! I suggest that you look at the Strathspey Weather statistics and pick a time for yourself! Good Luck! It isn’t easy is it! So just come prepared!
Mountain weather & Avalanche Advice
The best information that we know about mountain conditions.
Also, there is a valuable piece of advice about avalanches which has been created with cooperation between a number of agencies. We advise you to download the pdf from here and read more about mountain conditions from the main website. Or, you can pick up a copy in outdoor shops or other outlets.
You can find out the conditions on both nearby wintersports areas and choose to nip 20 miles up the empty road or go 17 miles and up the mountain railway. (These links are only available during the winter season.)
There are a number of places to get road conditions and incidents. The links to the better travel sites are below. I check all three as they have different attributes!
For conditions in the Moray Firth Radio area, which covers around us & up to Inverness then check out their MFR Travel News. For conditions to the east of us in Aberdeenshire check out Northsound Travel News
For live eye Camera views
For live incidents, including accidents & closed roads for the rest of Scotland, I use the BBC
