A very good idea given the recent arrival of TBE (tick-borne encephalitis) in England and the pre-existing problem of Lyme Disease. Raises all sorts of interesting issues around sampling and mapping which might be difficult but shouldn’t be insurmountable.
(Above) ‘Meggie gets a photo credit in the piece. If only snow cover was a tenth as good as that today. The picture features, front and centre, SAIS Creag Meagaidh’s very own Seamus Two Yachts O’Avalanche, skinning purposefully towards the business end of Coire Ardair.
(Above) Creag Meagaidh summit plateau as viewed from Geal Charn 1049m over in the ‘Ardverikie Forest’. Creag Meagaidh summit is the highest point on the skyline; the cairn is just visible if you zoom in. Nothing much below 850m apart from in some favoured gullies. Higher altitudes offer some large-ish patches, and N to E aspects have old snow patches on steep scarp and gully tops.
