Wet and Cloudy

23rd March 2018

Had to dig deep to muster some enthusiasm and motivation to venture out in the hills today! Below are some 3 word phrases to describe the day…..

Wet-Wet-Wet, Vertical Bog Walking, Wet-Wet-Wet, Cloud Base 700m, Wet-Wet-Wet, Mild Like Summer, Wet-Wet-Wet, Swarms Of Flies, Wet-Wet-Wet, Golden Plover Calls, Wet-Wet-Wet, Mountain Hare Tracks, Wet-Wet-Wet, Soaked To Skin, Wet-Wet-Wet, Soft Wet Snow, Wet-Wet-Wet, Burns In Spate, Wet-Wet-Wet, Generally Stable Snowpack, .Wet-Wet-Wet, Red Grouse Gargling, Wet-Wet-Wet.

The best view of the day. Patchy and wet snowpack on Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich.

Looking north onto the lower slopes of Beinn Dearg. Multiple cloud levels in mild and calm conditions as we were in the centre of a small depression through the morning.

The view into the main Fannaich mountains from the summit of Beinn Liath Bheag (665m). Reasonable snow cover hanging in there above 700m. No fresh snow observed on the summits by midday, but forecast to become colder and more showery later with strengthening winds and snow on the tops.

    Methinks hill-walking induced insanity. (I think you might be starting to lose it, Andy.)
    Hang on in there, buddy!
    Best regards.
