Gruffalo – bring it to us!

27th February 2018

(Above) Coire nan Gall. Seen from the A86 this morning – a strong NE wind stripping any loose deposits ‘up and over’

(Above) The same wind on other side of Coire nan Gall.

(Above)  Little evidence of any significant windlsab formation on the ground.  The  light shower first thing brought some graupel in the trace of new snow above 600m.

(Above) A quiet Coire Ardair today.

(Above) With the * ‘Beast from the East’ everywhere but with us –  I stopped off at the Mains of Glentruim, on the way home , to see how the view looked from the center (allegedly) of Scotland

(Above) The distant view of Creag Meagaidh and the ‘Window’ from the ‘center of Scotland’. I think the monument  in the foreground stands on Creah Ruadh (488m) We’re not short of momuments in the Highlands and I’m sure that a better authority on them will correct if I’m wrong….

 * C’mon beast – chuck us some of your snow in passing!

    Walked up coire ardair today – brightened up very nicely in the afternoon, but only saw one other party and one solo walker on the hills. Plenty of avalanche debris to point out to those in our group doing their first Scottish winter trip.

      Yes, debris all adding to the atmosphere!
      Mostly the remnants from what came down on the night of 18th /19th Feb.
      Hope you’re enjoying the winter – hopefully more to come 🙂

      Thanks for your support and comments.
