Sunny East Sunday

31st March 2024

A lovely day in Creag Meagaidh today. The carpark was busy, and I saw a few walkers out and about. It was feeling warm and spring like. The crags are still holding some ice, but it was looking soft and hollow (some icefall was observed on the Post Face). Looking slightly colder for the next few days.

It was a lovely spring morning. Believe it or not, it is not always quite this pleasant at Creag Meagaidh, so worth appreciating the days that are.

The classic view of Coire Ardair. Still a bit of snow and ice on the likes of the Post Face. Shortly after this picture was taken a ice was observed falling down North Post.

Looking down into Coire Ardair from the South-East.

Bellvue Buttress still looking quite wintry.

Still a fair bit of snow at higher levels on Beinn a’ Chlachair and on the other hills to the South of Loch Laggan.

An update from the Scottish Amphibian Information Service. Significant amphibian activity was observed in various sun warmed pools and streams on Southerly aspects below about 500 metres. Fortunately all observed amphibians (such as the one in the photo) were size one, i.e. not large enough to bury or injure a human.
