Fionn Bheinn

11th April 2024

A warm and dry and cloudy day with breaks in the cloud giving some views but very strong South-Westerly winds.

The limited patchy snow continues to thaw and diminish. Most snow remains around coire rims on North to East aspects above 800 metres on the most inland hills in our area, with most other areas nearly snow free. Fionn Bheinn was the location for todays observations and was a good example of this. Some snow remains in the high North-East facing coire, around the coire rim, while the normal route up the Munro from Achansheen is nearly snow free. The views to the South facing side of the Fannichs also showed limited snow compared to yesterdays photos from the North side.

The South side of Fionn Bheinn, which is often used by walkers from Achnasheen. Only a very small patch of easily avoidable snow remains.
