(Above) Carn Dearg 945m. A venture today to some Monros on the periphery of our main core Creag Meagaidh area. A similar story, not surprisingly; diminishing cover and moist surface layers of snow in remaining high sheltered locations.
(Above) Carn Dearg, 945m. Remaining cornices on these East facing crags all with developing creep lines and slumping. Some of these high locations are likely to see some new snow accumulations in the next 24 hrs, as a series of active front bring some snow, once again above 700m.
(Above) The view looking West from Carn Dearg over high ground  towards Gael Charn, 926m, above Glen Markie and the furthermost skyline to the plateau bulk of Cairn Liath, 1006m.
