A relatively calm and dry morning walk into the North side of Liathach before a frontal system moves through with high winds and snow forecast overnight and into tomorrow.

Looking into the North facing Coireag Dubh Mor. Note the old firm snow and thin slivers of ice remaining.  Fresh windslab expected to accumulate on these aspects over the next 24 hours.

A view of the Eastern end of Beinn Eighe looking up into the East facing aspects of Creag Dhubh.  The old firm snow is predominately above the 800m contour line.
