It was interesting to revisit the same area on Meall a Bhuiridh today to compare it with yesterdays observations.  Though we seem to be getting the tail-end of the Easterly airflow in Glencoe, with least snowfall, the snow cover is gradually increasing and it felt quite wintry today on the summits.

The 'Haggis Trap' on Meall a Bhuiridh - a good sheltered pocket to check snow accumulations.
