Crisp & Clear

21st January 2017

It was a frosty start to the day with fresh Southerly winds. The existing snowpack is firm and stable.

Looking towards Perthshire with Schiehallion the conical shaped peak clearly visible . This lies between Loch Tay, Loch Rannoch and Loch Tummel, about 10 miles to the West-North-West of Aberfeldy in Perthshire. Schiehallion is 1083 metres high, its  isolated position and regular shape led it to be selected by Charles Mason for a ground-breaking experiment to estimate the mass of the Earth in 1774.

Meall a Bhuiridh still holding enough snow for groups doing winter skills.

Southerly aspect of Buachaille Etive Mor. Ben Nevis in the distance still holding summit snows

Looking across to Creise and Stob a’ Ghlais Choire

Frozen Sphagnum moss

Many of the small lochs are frozen

Looking at the Grey Corries with Spean Bridge beyond.
