Turning cooler…

29th March 2019

It was cooler today with the old patchy snow feeling a lot firmer. The day started out bright and very pleasant in the sun. It quickly clouded over and it felt pretty chilly in the strong wind on the tops. The forecast is for it to stay cool over the weekend with the odd flurry of snow so the old snow patches will be firm. Strong winds as well tomorrow so it won’t be feeling much like Spring on the summits. Thought I’d wind myself up by looking at last year’s blog shots for the end of  March – I’ll share one throw-back shot at the end of this post…

Glas Maol at 1068m, with only minimal snow patches.

Looking over to Creag Leacach (987m) from the southern slopes of Glas Maol (1068m)

The cloud base kept fluctuating occasionally lowering to 1000m.

The estates are taking advantage of the dry snow free hills to get some heather burning done. Exciting work in these winds!
