High cloud

5th April 2017

(Above) Overnight frost near summits but lower down the thaw continues. Sron a Ghoire with the Post Face of Coire Ardair to the right.


(Above) Coire Chomharsain betwixt Sron a Ghoire and Puist Coire Ardair. On the other side of the Coire Ardair ‘trench’ the snow cover on the Carn Liath plateau is significantly less than seen above.

Below, a contribution from Leonie, one of our blog followers:-

In her own words:

“It was stellar day in late February and we were slow getting to Creag Meagaidh so made a late start from the car park. Original plan was to head up to The Window but with the limited daylight at that time of year we diverted into Coire Chriochairein instead. There was quite a lot snow on the ground and progress was slow however we were rewarded with utterly gorgeous views into this beautiful corrie. We stood transfixed by the quality of the light on the snow whenever we paused. The camera didn’t do it justice!”.
