Braw Day!
To be honest  – after yesterday anything would be an improvement. A little overcast to start, but by late morning a good deal of the cloud had dissipated giving a bright, sunny day. The old snow had firmed up overnight and had a well frozen top surface. The cover is very patchy now with very little snow existing under 900 metres. It was a cloudy view across to the main Cairngorms today but it was still apparent that the cover has become more patchy there as well. The patches are a lot larger though….

Very limited snow patches on Glas Maol and Cairn of Claise now. Hardly anything on The Cairnwell.


Looking SW from Carn nan Sac – not much white left….


Carn a’Gheoidh (974m). A dusting of new snow from yesterday.


Cloudy view over to the main Cairngorms. Much larger snow patches there…
