A Glorious Cold and Frosty Solstice

22nd December 2019

At least a glorious morning as it clouded over by midday, but with still a few sunny breaks. The limited snowpack is very firm and icy in places, but can generally be outmaneuvered. However, crampons are useful.

Below are some photos of the mountains in the Fannaich range showing the current extent of the snow cover.

An Teallach. OK, although technically not in the Fannaichs and outwith our forecasting area, it is a very spectacular and popular mountain.

Looking into The Great Wilderness mountains. Beinn a’ Chlaidheimh (easy for you to say!) on the right and Ruadh Stac Mor centre.

From L – R, Sgurr Breac, Toman Coinnich and A’Chailleach at the SW end of the Fannaichs.

3 Munros and a top – the main Fannaich hills. From L – R; Sgurr Mor, Carn na Criche, Meal a’ Chrasgaidh and Sgurr nan Clach Geala

Sun on surface hoar on some sedge and moss at 600m.

The southerly aspects of Beinn Dearg and Cona Mheall. Again, not technically part of the Fannaich mountains.

The rounded top of Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich on the left with Sgurr Mor peaking over and Meall a’ Chrasgaidh on the right.

Clouding over from the SW.
