A Grand Day Out

28th March 2022

It was a cloudy evening and day which meant that there was no ‘possible overnight frost’ as forecasted.  The sun did threaten to come out in the afternoon, but was soon engulfed with thicker clouds.  As a result, the snowpack continues to thaw slowly.  Taking advantage of the good weather, a grand tour of the Torridon area seemed appropriate.  It’s always good to get a good idea of where there is snow and where there isn’t snow.  I can confirm that there is more isn’t than is at this stage.  The freezing level will be dropping to 700 metres tomorrow which will mean that the snowpack will start to refreeze and snow is in the forecast.
