A drier afternoon

6th April 2023

Today was wet in the morning but cleared to give a drier afternoon. It was a colder day with moderate North-Westerly winds and the freezing level around the summits. Showers did turn to snow occasionally but it all melted instantly so there is no fresh snow to see. The hills are in summer condition with only a few patches of snow left. Today walking uphill in showers and poor visibility paid off as the rain stopped and the clouds lifted around midday as I reached the summits. It was good to see plenty people out enjoying the Torridon mountains.

The clouds clearing just in time. Looking East towards Sgurr Ban, with Creag Dubh in the distance on the left. Taken from the summit of Spidean Coire nan Clach, Beinn Eighe.


Looking west towards Coinneach Mor from Spidean Coire nan Clach, Beinn Eighe.

Sgurr Ban, Beinn Eighe with Sgurr nan Fhir Duibhe, behind.

Stuc Coire an Laoigh with Loch Clair behind.


The remaining snow patches in Coire an Laoigh, Beinn Eighe, all easily avoidable.

Proof it did actually snow today if only briefly! Sgurr nan Fhir Duibhe in the background.
