Cold and clear

15th April 2023

A sparkling start with clear skies and as the sun came out it warmed up nicely. It has been a super day in the glens and on the summits. The sparse snow pack is well consolidated and generally stable. There has been some surface softening but there is still firm stable snow underneath. The car parks are busy and there were lots of people out walking in the hills.

This is our last blog report from our SAIS Torridon team for this 22/23 winter season… we look forward to returning in mid December 2023.

The path repair and erosion control work is making good progress on the Coire an Laoigh path, there are some tripping hazards so do take care. Its well signposted with a request to; “please follow the contractors instructions.” Behind in the same photo you can see some snow on some of the lower tops which was thawing in the warming sun.

Fine views showing most snow is on the higher ridges and coire rims.

Slioch in the mid-distance.
