Two Firsts!

1st March 2023

Today is the first of March and I heard the first Golden Plover returning to the hills – it must be Spring. It was a cloudy day on the high summits in the Fannaichs with the cloud base generally around 850m. No change in the snow cover. It remains very limited, patchy and firm, mainly lingering above 800m.

(Above) The Northerly aspects of the North Top of Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich. The highest point being 850m.

(Above) Cloudy summits of Sgurr Mor and Carn na Criche.

(Above) North-East aspects of Meall a’ Chrasgaidh. There were a few bright intervals on the more coastal mountains in the lee of the East wind.

(Above) South-Westerly aspects of Beinn Dearg. The lowest snow patch is around 650m.
