Molefinder General switches search to Sron a Ghoire

18th February 2024

No trace found.

Must have gone to ground.


(Above) Sron a Ghoire with the summit of Puist Coire Ardair just visible. Pretty much bare below 700m but with bigger patches above 800m especially in favoured accumulation zones and gullies.


(Above) The eastern end of the Carn Liath massif. Coire a Bheinn nearest, Coire Dubh centre and Coire nan Gall far left.

Clear intervals at times today but with lingering misty interludes. Slightly cooler (…slightly!) than yesterday with occasional mizzle in the morning.  The forecast is for the freezing level to fall to around 1000m in the morning with a trace of snow falling out of the sky but not enough to make a difference to the overall coverage, or the current Low avalanche hazard.

Cornice collapse, ice and rockfall all possible but a diminishing hazard once colder conditions become established.

    Re. moles at altitude / with attitude! I too was amazed to see several mole hills in rocky ground at around 2800ft on Beinn lutharn Mhor in the Autumn of ’23. One has to admire the humble mole!
