The End is Nigh…..

18th April 2015

Well maybe not quite – although this the last report  /Blog for the season!

Not all gloom & doom. Blue skies to end with lots of folk out and about around Creag Meagaidh;  car park was almost full, with the full gambit of cars & campervans these past couple of days –  paragliders, motor bikers, cyclists and even a couple of fishermen in the mix, all enjoying the spring weather on offer in sunny Loch Lagganside…..

Little change in the hill conditions from images on yesterday’s blog – I’ll leave you with the selection below from my stagger up Creag Mhor ridge today.

We hope over the season you have found the Blog useful, informative and even maybe at times entertaining!

Thanks for all the many comments and input.

Have a great summer and bodies willing see you all next season……

Meall Coire Choillie-rais. Old debris runs on face with a few cornice remnants still to come down.

      No ‘steward’s inquiry’ needed but a narrow victory!

      Many thanks to all of you out there in internetland who have followed the blog + special thanks to those who contributed comments!

    Totally echo Grant’s comments and would also add your superb explanations. I wonder if the snow patch in Raeburns that survived last year will finally melt this year. Snow patch watching now !

    Many thanks and have a great summer !
