Winter Returns

2nd April 2019

Overnight snow has left a covering on most aspects above roughly 600m, with most new snow lying on steep sheltered easterly aspects above 800m. The hills were looking very wintry early morning but later thawed at lower levels and especially on slopes exposed to the sun. The old snow remains firm and icy in places particularly around the summits.

The east end of Beinn Eighe this morning. The greater expenses of snow are mostly areas of firm old snow. The new snow cover is generally superficial.

The northerly aspects of the south Torridon hills.

Looking north from the summit of Spidean Coire nan Clach on the main ridge of Beinn Eighe.

Looking east along the Beinn Eighe ridge. Light wintry showers building to the west drifted across the area from mid morning.

Liathach emerging. Spot the 4 hill runners. Rather them than me trying to run in these conditions in fell running shoes!

Light wintry showers, snow above 600m., running up Glen Torridon from the west.

The east end of Beinn Eighe early afternoon. Compare to the first photo. Snow loss on Southerly aspects?

      Easy when the landscape is so beautiful – point and press! And of course one has to flog up to the summit……
