Bidein Clann Raonaild

18th December 2023

I headed up Bidein Clann Raonaild today. Normally there are great views of the other Torridon mountains from the summit but I got the timing wrong and low cloud meant no decent views. Photos of Beinn Eighe and Liathach, below, were taken from the roadside later in the day.

It wasn’t as wet or windy as the last couple of days but still mild with the freezing level above the summits.

Gale force Westerly winds and showers falling as snow above around 700 metres are forecast overnight and during tomorrow (Tuesday). Isolated windslab accumulations will develop in sheltered locations. These will lie on bare ground and there is not expected to be any significant avalanche hazard.
