Cooler, plus new snow…

20th December 2020


The Scottish Avalanche Information Service would recommend that those wishing to enjoy the winter mountains refer to Mountaineering Scotland and Scottish Government advice regarding Covid-19 and outdoor activities.

The freezing level lowered to around 850 metres and showers fell as snow down to 750 metres accumulations are generally quite shallow and they are well bonded. The winds were fresh to strong at times form a South-Westerly direction.

Looking into Stob coire nam Beith with its summit at 1107m

Stob coire nam Beith after last nights snow.

Buachaille Etive Mor with Meall a’ Bhuiridh distant left. Less snow on the Buachaille than Stob coire nam Beith but its slightly lower at 1022 metres.

Meall a’ Bhuiridh on the left with Sron na Creise 996 metres.

New snow at around 1040 metres.

A fine sight, I was was wondering if it might be Callum from Torridon, visiting for Christmas because the grass might be greener!
