After overnight snowfall above around 300 metres the freezing level rose above the summits today with rain at all levels and strong winds.

Looking into Coire nan Lochan. A rising snowline and plenty water in the burns.

It was still possible to skin from the carpark at Glencoe ski area this morning. There was a lot of slush at this level by the time I came back down.

This red deer was very sensibly sheltering in the trees this morning.
