Winds were slightly less strong today but still very cold over the summits
The recent strong East to South-East winds have scoured some aspects and redistributed the snow onto others. The localised effects on the main hills creates a wind funnel effect between them in this wind direction. This is evident in todays photos where you can see the band of erosion caused by the strong winds funnelling down the glen between Aonach Mor and Carn Mor Dearg
