Covid-19 – SAIS general advice regarding mountain activities.
In its daily blogs SAIS forecasters illustrate the mountain landscape with the objective of providing information regarding snow cover and mountain hazards. This information is intended to enable enjoyment of the winter mountains with knowledge and safety and aid decision making and route choice for those planning to visit Scotland’s hills and mountains.
During the current situation with Covid-19 we would encourage all those going outdoors to be mindful of unintended consequences of their actions and the potential impact on medical and rescue personnel. Consider your objectives carefully in relation to current conditions and BE SAFE

With grateful thanks the SAIS team
It was a day for views. Little change in the snowpack. Heard the first Skylarks of the season, singing up high above the moorland around the Fain – such simple pleasures! A lovely time of year when it feels like spring in the glens, but still very much winter conditions in the mountains.
