After a dull morning with the cloud base at 900 metres, conditions improved to give a beautiful sunny afternoon. The snow continues to thaw with cover becoming very patchy below 900 metres especially on East and Southerly aspects.

East and South facing slopes are patchy below 900m. Carn nan Sac and Carn a’Gheoidh from The Cairnwell.


West and North facing slopes tend to hold more snow. Ridges and plateau areas are more broken.


The cloud broke in the afternoon to give blue sky and sunshine. Large areas of snow above 1000m on Ben Avon.
