It was a cold, dry day with strong Easterly winds. Although there was a lot of sunshine, the summit of Meall a’ Bhuiridh was in the cloud for most of the day. There is breakable crust in many places with more recent windslab on top mainly on South-West to North-West aspects – see full forecast for further details.
