A grey moist day!

2nd February 2017

A moist, mild day with the weather deteriorating through the morning.  At 4.5 degrees Celsius at 900 metres it’s not surprising that the snowpack is diminishing.  Broad Gully, in Coire nan Lochan, is still complete but the lip of the corrie above the gullies is bare of snow.
