/ Hill conditions (central / east highlands)
Yeah, cheers. That does help. Thinking now of Meall nan Subh. Found I lack OS maps of the east of Loch Tay region (and I don't use gps mapping or have a printer at home).
If anyone gets round to approving it there'll be a photo of Ben Lawers on Monday here
Good covering, though the ridges mostly blown/washed clear.
More snow Monday night, very windy yesterday.
Judging by the forecasts, it'll mostly be on its way to the sea by the weekend.
In reply to Flinticus: And considering that the nice weather lady said 'unseasonable mild across the country' I would think slush city.
Snow largely clear on Meall nan Subh though patches lingering and more extensive above 800m (looking across to neighbouring munros). Found a compact snow covered north facing slope with a nice convex changing to concave slope running out into grass. Had fun doing some self-arrest practice. A good half day.
