Gone are the blue skies and for the last couple of days there has been cloud cover and temperatures in the glens have risen above freezing. Laurence and I went Glenfinnan way today and up Streap, a gem of a  peak in the West Highlands with several knobbly summits before reaching the wonderful final narrow ridge to the summit. At 901m it doesn't make Munro status, thankfully! We followed one of the many wee burns up from the Dubh Lighe glen to the ridge finding some ice here and there amongst the still unconsolidated snow. There was a strong SE wind today to spice up the final ridge walk. Stayed dry all day and cloud above the tops so nice views.
