Triple Buttresses

5th March 2024

Gale force winds restricted today’s observations to lower levels, but with excellent visibility this was an ideal opportunity for views into the North side of the Torridon hills. A thin and superficial covering of snow remains on Northerly aspects. In places this still exists down to 600 metres, although this was receding up the hillside throughout the day.

Triple Buttresses and Loch Coire Mhic Fhearchair on the north side of Beinn Eighe. Morrison’s Gully on Sáil Mhor is the prominent line on the right hand side of the photo. The Loch is at 580 metres.


The North side of Beinn Dearg (914m) on the left and Beinn Alligin (986m) on the right.


The Fisherfield Hills and Slioch (981m), virtually devoid of snow.


Icy hillside at around 600 metres. There were quite a few areas like this today, but in this location they were easily avoidable.


Looking across to The Fannichs and Sgùrr nan Clach Geala (1093m).


Fionn Beinn (933m).
