Calm, dry, bright with an Arty twist.

9th January 2020

Overnight, it was cold with further light snow showers which fell above 400 metres. Today was calm and dry with some bright sunny spells which gave good views. The freezing level was around 500 metres.

Slightly more snow today on the Southerly aspect of the Aonach Eagach Ridge.

North side of Stob Dearg – Buachaille Etive Mor

Meall a Bhuiridh and Sron na Creise.

Light accumulations of snow and as the photo shows the deeper accumulations are in sheltered hollows.

Looking towards Buachaille Etive Mor.

Looking across the Rannoch Moor toward the Perthshire hills.

The mighty Ben Nevis and surrounding mountains.


On my travels today I saw in the distance what I thought was a lassie trying to use a paraglider or a large kite however, when I got closer and talked to her, she said she was taking photos for her studies in contemporary art. This lovely lassie was studying contemporary art in Glasgow and this project theme was ‘glaciers’ and where they used to exist in Scotland.

Only to happy to help – Thanks to Moutain Equipment for keeping us warm and dry -
