Light winds and good visibility

9th January 2020

Light winds and good visibility for a change which made it a good opportunity to get up high and see the plateau.  Old patches of snow are sparse firm and icy.  There’s generally a thin cover of snow with shallow deposits of windslab on N to E aspects.  Summit temperatures were minus 5 C throughout the day.

Looking South at Beinn Mheadhoin, Carn Etchachan and the Shelter Stone.
