Topic - When will it be safe to walk Munros without winter gear?

PPP - on 11 Mar 2014
Hi,

Sadly, I couldn't get prepared for this winter and don't have an ice axe and crampons. I want to start walking again next month (the earliest time I can combine having days off at two workplaces and university). Would it be safe to go somewhere around Loch Lomond? Ben Oss and similar...

Thing is, that I have seen only one Scottish spring in my life and I have no idea what to expect! I started walking May last year and apart from weather being terrible (horizontal rain and mist most of the day), Bein Narnain and Ime were safe enough with some snow, but no ice at all.
