Pretty places

2nd March 2019

(Above) Fairly quiet at the Creag Meagaidh car park today – there was a good enough start to the day, although  evidence of the poor weather appearing with clouds developing from the West.

(Above) We do get to go to some pretty places in the course of the ‘winter’! This certainly one of them. The walk today into Coire Choillie-rais, on the Southern flanks of Creag Meagaidh’s Creag Mhor ridge.

(Above) Not a lot of winter conditions on the Creag Mhor ridge at present it has to be said!  Although that may change  overnight, with the forecast of lowering temperatures and fresh snow for above 700m.

(Above) Lochan Coire Choillie-rais. At 800m one of our highest (and prettiest) lochans in the Creag Meagaidh range.

(Above) The waterfalls on the coire back wall starting to go uphill in the increasing Southerly winds, as I made my way off the hill, after midday.

(Above) This one at 400m still going the right way…..

All change. The start of more winter like conditions  yet to effect any change today – overnight the further bands of wintry weather will bring frequent snow showers, some heavy at times, in the strong SW winds to high ground. White tops again at least.
