Glen Lyon

Today I was out with a Falkirk High Tops Team of Craig, Alan, Billy, Colin,Craig, Edith, Lorn, Ros, Sue, Willie and Vic on Stuchd an Lochain. The drive down Glen Lyon and up to the Loch an Daimh damn required care due to hard packed snow and black ice in places. There were patches of soft old snow from road level and this increased to almost full cover with height and firmed up to the point where kicking steps was quite hard work. There was icing on paths from road level and the turf was firm above about 700m.

Careful route choice meant we didn’t need to put crampons on, but axes were required.

Alan on the summit

Some very light snow flurries during the day on a strong West then North-West wind. Cloud on and off with some patches of sunshine. Freezing level was around 700m.
