Misty start, but improving.

3rd April 2016

A misty start to the day with the mist sitting at about 400 metres.  However things improved and the cloud level had risen to around 900 metres by mid-day.  The snowpack is becoming more moist at all levels and is gradually diminishing.

Contrast the lack of snow to be seen on the ‘craggy’ Buachaille compared with the still well-covered snowfields of the more mellow Meall a Bhuiridh.
