Beinn Eighe, Torridon

2nd April 2022

A glorious day. After a frosty start, it quickly warmed in the sun and the new snow cover ‘burnt off” at lower levels. But it remained cold at summit elevations and on shaded Northerly aspects.(Above) Liathach at around 9.oo am this morning. The summit cloud dissipated later in the morning.(Above) The shaded Northerly aspects of Maol Chean-dearg (left) and Beinn Damh.(Above) A light covering of new snow in Coire an Laoigh, Beinn Eighe, with the summit of Spidean Coire nan Clach upper right. The ‘pure white’ areas of snow are of the firm old snow patches.(Above) Roller balls. By late morning, the sun was strong enough to have an effect on the soft new snow.(Above) The Southerly aspects of Sgurr Ban and Sgurr nan Fhir Duibhe. The snowline was creeping upwards as the new snow thawed in the direct sunlight.(Above) The east end of Beinn Eighe – Sgurr nan Fhir Duibhe and Creag Dhubh. By early afternoon, most snow that remained was the old snow
