It was a mild murky day in Lochaber. Summit temperatures were just above freezing. Although the hills are looking blacker than a few days, this is mainly due to the loss of the shallow snow cover at lower levels. At higher levels the snowpack is only slowly thawing, and cover is still pretty good. It looks like the higher areas will gain some snow over the next few days while lower areas will continue to loose it.

The view to Carn Mor Dearg and Ben Nevis this morning. Murky would be a good way to describe the weather conditions today. 

The poor visibility on the summit means the photos from up there were somewhat “minimalist”.  

Looking down the goose gully during a brief clearing. There is still good snow cover at higher levels.
