Freezing at glen levels first thing, but temperatures rose through the morning with freezing levels rising to above the summits by midday. Â Calm and sunny conditions, the snowpack quickly turned soft on sun exposed slopes. Â Some stream beds are partially covered in snow. Â Stepping stones are still covered in places such as the main path into Lochain and just incase the snow collapses when crossing, it’s worth giving the snow a hard prod with a walking pole as there are some quite deep drops into the stream below.
