Happy New Year from Torridon!

It was a cold morning in Kinlochewe, zero degrees and drizzle. Slippy!

Heading through Glen Torridon towards the sea temperatures rose slightly. There were heavy showers throughout the morning falling as snow at all levels interspersed by short bright periods.

Below,  Coire an Laoigh, Beinn Eighe mid morning. Visibility was poor above 600 metres.

Below, One of the few short bright spells. Looking South-East to Loch Clair. Deep accumulations on this aspect even at low levels.
