Snow melt

22nd January 2023

The thaw continues in Glen Torridon.  Many rivers are in spate condition which is great news for water based enthusiasts, but not such great news for arctic based enthusiasts.  All but the most resilient snow has now gone from lower elevations with the deeper patches at mid level still hanging in. Better cover above 750 metres.

Above:  Beinn Eighe from the A896.

Above:  More water than snow at lower elevations.

Above: A’Ghairbhe river.  This amount of water is normally associated with heavy rain of which we have had none.  This is all snow melt.
