All our yesterdays

19th February 2017

(Above) Glossy sheen from a thin crust on one of the old snow patches on Sron a Ghoire. No overnight snow just rain at all levels which died out by morning. Misty to start but cleared later leaving a dry, bright and pleasant afternoon.


(Above) Noticeable snow loss in all locations again. This is a view towards Carn Liath from Sron a Ghoire, with the popular Munro’s summit cairn at 1006m just detectable in the photo.

Whilst we haven’t a ‘turbo-thaw’ there’s been quite a transition in snow cover in the past few days. See below:

(Above) 10th February. The Min Window on the Carn Liath plateau – the skyline is at about 950m. This re-entrant normally gathers quite a lot of snow and shows a reasonable build up within the feature.


(Above) The Min Window on 14th February. The high plateau area surrounding the re-entrant also show evidence of ablation.


(Above) The Min Window today. Looking a bit sorry for itself!
