Torridon – A Pitiful Sight!

19th February 2024

It was a cloudy day with scattered showers of rain at all levels. Only isolated slivers, patches, strips and runnels of snow remain, mostly on the hills away from the coast and on N through E to SE aspects, generally above 700m.

A sad sight to see the lack of snow in the Torridon mountains. Apparently, when the winter conditions get lean, the lean go bouldering! I met a group from north Wales today hiding from the rain in the Torridon boulders.

Below are 3 photos of the Torridon hills and their lack of snow:
