Gusts of over 70 mph with mild temperatures;  Highs of plus 5 degrees at summit levels.  Rivers are in full spate from recent heavy rain and melting snow!

Gale to storm force winds blew the cobwebs away,  underfoot conditions were mostly straightforward.

Sneachda burn in full spate; the stepping stones were underwater, but crossable.

Sneachda still looking wintry but the snow is currently soft and thawing. Creep lines are developing beneath the buttresses due to the recent mild temperatures and rain.
