(Above) Looking towards Coire Dubh ( the Eastern end of our ‘patch’) from the broad shoulder of Coire a Bhein. Good general cover of snow above 400 metres at the moment. Conditions are hard and firm with icy patches on many scarp /wind exposed hillsides. Softer drifted accumulations in sheltered lee areas.

(Above) Not often the Beauly to Denny power lines look ‘ bonnie’ – I guess beauty always in the eye of the beholder!
