It was a very windy day but definitely a lot milder than recent days.

There is little snow coverage below 800 metres, becoming better and often firmer above 900 metres. Looking across to the main Cairngorms.


It was around +4 degrees celsius at 900 metres this morning, snow was starting to thaw at all levels . Running water at 950 metres.


Looking towards Corrie Kander, Cairn o Claise and Glas Maol. Coverage still good high in these locations.
