A Lovely Spring-Like Day

17th January 2022

A dry day with lots of sun, although broken cloud pestered the higher summits at times, more so on the more coastal mountains. Little change in the snow cover. It remains very patchy, generally firm and stable throughout, with a slight dusting of recent snow on the highest summits. Little change expected.

Below are some general landscape photos showing the remaining snow in the more northern hills of our forecast area.

(Above) 3 Munros and a top in the Fannaichs. From left to right; Meall a’ Chrasgaidh, Carn na Criche, Sgurr Mor and Sgurr nan Clach Geala. The slightest of a dusting of recent snow is visible on Sgurr Mor and Sgurr nan Clach Geala.

(Above) Sgurr Mor (right) and Beinn Liath Mor Fannaich from the north.

(Above) An unfrozen Loch Toll an Lochain and a much depleted snow cover on A’Chailleach. Most snow patches remain on North to East aspects, along coire rims, in runnels and gullies and crag aprons. Despite a slow thaw at all levels, the snow is firm at higher elevations and has a surface crust elsewhere.
