Busy in the Fannaichs
23rd February 2018
There was a surprising number of vehicles parked at the access points into the mountains today. But, I shouldn’t be surprised considering theÂ good walking conditions (firm snowpack at all levels)Â and the great weather. Even the wildlife is more active! Still, it was a cold day with a strong SSE wind at summit levels and a high windchill despite the sun. There isÂ a significant haze in the air which is most likely atmospheric industrialÂ pollution from Europe and dare I say it, England! Consider the source airflow and track of our current high pressure weather. The centre of the high (at midday today) is over Denmark, with a strong EasterlyÂ airflow tracking from eastern Europe, through Germany, becoming a South-Easterly over England and up the west coast to the Torridon area.

Destitution road was so-called because it was built as a poor-relief scheme i.e. to provide work for cash to stave off starvation. This is my understanding.
