A glaze of ice.

The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.  Please be aware of travel restrictions within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and how to participate safely by referring to Mountaineering Scotland guidance.

Due to cool conditions and dense hill fog a thin glaze of ice has developed above 600 metres.   It initially goes unnoticed until you encounter footpaths and boulder fields, these are particularly treacherous.  The glaze of ice is slowly being covered by a thin cover of new snow.  Mind how you go…
