(Above) Coire a Bhein (903m) At the Eastern end of the Creag Meagaidh / Cairn Liath Plateau. The tops of gully exits and around coire rims catching some new windblown accumulations.
(Above) Looking back down from the shoulder of Coire a Bhein towards the Spey Dam, at head of the loch. Small localised accumulations below 800m in the varying terrain features. This cold North Westerly blast looks to be slow to move on, sticking around a bit longer over this next period.
