Christmas at Creag Meagaidh.
25th December 2019
(Above) Temperature inversion conditions at Creag Meagaidh on Christmas Day. Cloud inversion here in lower Coire Ardair this morning. There was at least one other inverted layer between 600m and 900m, too.
(Above) Coire nan Gamhna and its tiny lochan: a small but perfectly formed glacial feature high above Coire Ardair. The low point on the backwall is at 980m. Always quiet here and today was no exception. There was a little old but very thin windslab high on the right hand side of the photo. Very firm/hard underfoot here. Ice and crampons essential if venturing high in similar locations.
(Above) Looking across to the Post Face and the Inner Coire from Coire nan Gamhna. Little or no wind here today but cloud cover ‘sandwich’ moved up and down a bit during the course of the late morning and early afternoon, alternately exposing and cloaking the exit ramps of the Post Face crags.
