A better day!

2nd April 2016

A calm, dry day with some warm sunny spells.  Avalanche debris was spotted from the roadside in the Western side of Coire nam Beith at about 900 metres which had, presumably, released on Friday afternoon when it rained heavily and the temperature went up.   Later, in Coire nan Lochan, debris was observed below SC Gully which had probably released during the same period.
