Lovely spring day

25th March 2017

At the east end of the Creag Meagaidh ‘patch’ is Carn Dubh in Glen Shirra above the Spey Reservoir.

Looking on to the steep easterly aspect of Stob Coire Dubh where there was evidence of some cornice collapse in the rising daytime temperatures. This is the snow cover at approximately 750 metres.

The snow cover on the Carn Liath plateau and beyond to the Creag Meagaidh plateau in the background on the left of the picture.

    Well….it’s been a fairly useless winter snow-wise but your comments have kept me informed and amused. Also some excellent photography. Thank you.
    My closing thought……it is hard to believe that in 1965 I was climbing on Bowfell Butress in the Lakes in full winter conditions at Easter! How times have changed. Back then we were being advised the next ice age was imminent but now……………
    And…. the two comments I enjoyed the most were “spot the dog” and ” now you see it…now you don’t” re the cairn.
