Sunshine on the Summits

11th January 2024

Inversion condition today gave cold temperatures with icy paths, and frozen snow at mid mountain height with warmer temperatures and sunshine on the summits. Low level cloud shows the inversion conditions.

Icy paths at lower levels will remain a hazard.

    These photos are absolutely fantastic! We always enjoy all the photos and the text of your blog, thank you for these wonderful reminders of Torridon and all the great times we’ve had there over many years. Today’s photos are as good as anything we’ve seen in any guidebook, or anywhere at all. We’re aware that the main point of the blog is to provide vital information for people who are heading into the hills now (which sadly we’re not able to at the moment…), but the blog is also very much appreciated in it’s own right, too – a real tonic for us… thanks!

    Dear Claire and Duncan

    Thankyou very much for your kind words which are very much appreciated. Of course we alway try to convey the beauty of the wonderful mountains that we are fortunate to work in, days like the one today, provide such reward for those challenging days that we experience from time to time. It is nice to know that we can convey some of the mountain magic to you also. best wishes Gillian, Heather, Mark and Andy
