Coire an Lochain

23rd December 2023

“Never miss an opportunity to take a photo” – that’s a phrase that sticks in my mind, especially today since I really didn’t know how long the snow would last.  This evening the freezing level will peak at 3000 metres (not a typo) before finally dropping to 1000 metres around morning.  After today, I’ll take that.

    3000 meters? That is almost 10,000 feet. Luckily our mountains are not that high. Should make for some great warm weather walking

    These photos are excellent!
    I’ve been lucky enough to have taken a few of Glencoe and surrounding landscape in my time.
    When I see this beautiful sight, I realise how lucky I am.
