Cloudy conditions in the Glen gave way to blue skies and sunshine above 800 metres with great views of the higher tops sticking out above the clouds.
Ice on paths, rocks and watercourses requires great care. Small slips can often lead to the most dire of consequences in the Glencoe area.

Isolated pockets of soft windslab exist in sheltered hollows and gullies but are generally avoidable.
Widespread ice is forming on paths and in watercourses with verglas on many exposed rocks above 800 metres.
