In Search of the White Stuff.

27th December 2019

A monochrome day. Low cloud, periods of rain, windy and very mild – it reached 10 degrees C in Glen Torridon. Not a good day to be on the hill. The snow cover that remains is wet, thawing at all levels and generally patchy with most snow clinging to high coire rims, ridge flanks and deep gullies and runnels.

The answer to yesterday’s ‘quiz’ is: from left to right; Meall a’ Chrasgaidh (Munro, 934m.), Carn na Criche (top, 961m.), Sgurr Mor (Munro, 1110m.), Sgurr nan Clach Geala (Munro, 1093m.). Points to all who guessed correct!

Liathach from Glen Torridon and a typical view of today’s mountains around the Torridon area – sheets of rain and little snow observed, particularly so on the more coastal hills.

Slivers of snow visible on Beinn Eighe around Coire an Laoigh.

Similar story on the south side of Liathach.

The eastern coires of Sgurr a’ Chaorachain near Applecross – between rain….!
