High Pressure Conditions

17th December 2021

High pressure continues to dominate our weather and has a subsequent effect on what remains of the snowpack. The snow cover is patchy, slowly thawing at all levels, most of which is largely avoidable. Little snow remains below 700 metres. Similar weather and snow conditions expected tomorrow.


Above: The dark side of Beinn Eighe from the slopes of Meall a’ Ghiuthais. Creag Dhubh (900m) on the left and Ruadh-stac Beag (896m) on the right.

Above; A snow free landscape! Slioch on the left and looking to the Fannaich mountains beyond. Summit cloud lingered at around 850m for most of the morning, only breaking and lifting in the afternoon.

Above: Cloud breaking over Slioch on the way down. Typical….! Loch Maree in the fore.

Above: Lingering patches and strips of thawing snow on NE to SE aspects of Creag Dhubh and Sgurr nan Fhir Duibhe of Beinn Eighe.
