Despite blowing snow around at 1000 metres recently formed deposits were not deep.
Corrie Fionn. The old snow is rock hard, often disguised with a thin layer of new snow.
Ptarmigan basking in the sunshine. After a very cold start to the day this afternoon felt much warmer than the morning.
Becoming cloudy over the Cairngorms, Cairntoul, Braeriach and Ben McDui. Great views for most of today but some showers developed late afternoon.
