One of the many falls & pools in the Allt  Coire Guibhsachan
Coire Guibhsachan & Aonach Beag

A snowy Aonach Beag beyond
Heading down and the CMD arete with fresh snow

Looking into Steall Meadow and The Mamores
It was another cold night with rain into the morning which put some fresh snow down to 750m on the hills of Lochaber . Looks set to be quite cool all this week so don't put the woolies away just yet! Today Laurence and I went up the lovely Meall Chumain which only reaches the lowly height of just over 600m but it has many impressive mountain features which put many a bigger hill to shame. Our route today went through the lovely Glen Nevis gorge  to Steall Falls and meadows then alongside beautiful wee waterfalls and pools and finally up the pathless east slopes to the fine summit viewpoint. Great views looking all the way down to the car park, across to Ben Nevis, Aonach Beag and The Mamores. There was a cool breeze on the tops so it must have been winter temperatures on the higher tops.
