/ An Teallach and Northern Scotland region still snowy??
Does anybody know if An Teallach and surrounds has lost any of the plentiful snow it had on it a few weeks ago?
Most of the webcams up those parts don't work or don't show any hills.
Is that not looking at Beinn Damh from Wester Alligin?
Don't know, just copied the text from the Steven Fallon site www.stevenfallon.co.uk/webcams.html
I think that might be out of date!
Yes. That particular webcam view isn't too reliable these days.
But certainly, it isn't near An Teallach.
Might get to see AT and/or above for myself this weekend, as there will at least be sunshine up there -- I hope.
I live in Achiltibuie and I can see An Teallach across the bay from out of my window. Cloud level since Mon/Tues has been pretty low, but there's been a fresh snow dusting down to maybe 600 metres on everything down that way every morning this week (can see from Bein Ghobhlach South to Baosbheinn in Torridon from here).
On the lower hills like Sail Mor, Beinn Dearh Mor etc it's gone by lunchtime mostly, and the clag tends to hang around An Teallach, but from what I can see right now the Fannaichs are absoloutely loaded which means an Teallach may have a fair bit left. Probably will be soft and avalanchey though due to constant fresh falls and yo-yo temperatures.
I saw An Teallach yesterday. It thawed up to the tops during the day so the amount of snow reduced a lot, but there was still a fair bit high up, though not on the steepest steps.
Thank you all for the useful reports. We went to Torridon instead.
Another fresh dump on the Friday night all around. But by Sunday Liathach was clear dry rock on the pinnacles and very nice in the increasing sun. A bonus was a great descent down almost continuous snow into the northern corrie for the return.
An Teallach looked very wintery as noted above. This (much awaited) sunny warm spell will no doubt change things there.
Snow in my part of the NW Highlands all but gone now. A few streaks on An Teallach will be nothing more than a few square metres by the end of tomorrow. Even The Fannaichs and Beinn Dearg looking very bare. Think that's yer lot for Winter 2k11/12 season lads! Even Cairngorm starting to melt. Decent enough late season though all things considered. Only 4 or 5 months til the first fresh falls of next Winter!
