Scottish winter conditions - Meall Corranaich, Sunday 17th November 2013.

Almost spring like conditions on the way up from the new car park where the old Lawers visitors centre used to be. Lots of folks heading up the other path to Ben lawers, but not many going our way.

Much of last weeks snow has now gone, just patches here and there.  

A patch of snow we found to cross on the route to Meall Corranaich from the bealach between it and the Lawers ridge.

Some snow and small cornices left on the ridge running from Meall Corranaich to
Coire Liath.

Tess waiting for a snack on the way up!

From  Meall Corranaich we descened to Coire Liath, then carried on to Meall a' Choire Leith (seen as in the distance as we didn't stay too long on it's bleak and windy summit!).

Tess checking out the cornices for us!!!

Ok, it will hold 25 kilos!

Signs of the thaw and re-freeze.
