15th February 2020
A similar day to yesterday, but much heavier and a more prolonged period of rain! Thought I’d beat the heaviest rain by setting off a bit earlier. Wrong! I was furthest from the road when the worst wind and rain hit the Torridon hills. Just as well the wood stove was burning hot in the Torridon café later.
Heavy thaw conditions affecting a much depleted and saturated snowpack. Some summit sleet and snow later in the afternoon.
Below are three photos of the north side of Liathach showing limited snow cover in the northern coires, North-West to North-East aspects. Many ice slivers remaining in all the usual places – but for how long?
