(Above) Temperature inversion conditions kept us in the murk for much of the day, until above 850m. Here on Beinn Teallach 915m, at the far West of our wider Meagaidh forecast area.
(Above) Finally – let there be light…
(Above) Creag Meagaidh – The Window viewed from the ‘other side’ . Unusually this year the high NW facing aspects holding largest quantities of snow.
(Above) The money shot for today – a sea of cloud below 850m. Stob Coire Easain / Stob a Choire Mheadhoin (Thisyin and Thatyin – so my more learned friends advise) the ‘stand out’ of the day, above Loch Treig …. someway below in the cloud.
