Windy and wet!

The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.

Please be aware of current mandatory travel restrictions in Local Authority areas within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and safe route choices for exercise. For further guidance please refer to the following information for hillwalkers and climbers and snowsports on ski and board.

This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.

We have had storm strength South-South-East winds backing Southerly later with heavy rain fall to all levels. Walking  conditions were difficult today with burns and streams running full. Temperatures are mild although feeling cold with the wind chill.

Beinn Bhan 896m, buttresses are stripped but the gullies still have snow.

A slight brightening this early afternoon gave me a view of Creag Dhubh, (Beinn Eighe) and Sgurr nan Fhir Duibhe.
