Feeling colder in the westerly winds. There was some brighter periods in the glen but higher on the hill it was mainly drizzle with poor visibility on the tops. The snow pack has depleted with best cover above 850 metres on North to East aspects. The male Ptarmigan were sparring with each other today which is a sure sign of spring, the noise they were making added a touch of atmosphere to what was otherwise a rather dull and drizzly backdrop.

In Coire an Laoigh this morning, drizzle and poor visibility with only patches of snow remaining.

The hills looked nicer from the glen but this view of Creag Dhubh, Beinn Eighe was short lived.
