Cloudless in the Fannichs

17th March 2016

The glorious settled conditions continue. Perfect walking conditions with a lovely cooling North-West breeze. The patchy snowpack very quickly softened in the sun and rising temperatures, but remained firmer in the shade.

Looking North-West to Ullapool and Loch Broom. No snow left on the lower hills of (left to right) Ben Mor Coigach, Stac Pollaidh, Cul Beag and Cul Mor. Inversion haze/’smog’ evident in the glens.
