Stunning day in the NW Highlands, the best place to be in the UK for a few days, going by weather reports. It was  truly Alpine weather conditions on today. Warm sun and solid neve in Central Gully on Sgor Ruadh, Torridon. It was down to base layers, even in the shade on the east side of the mountain. There is an obvious gully that splits the face here, Central Gully. From bottom to top it was hard neve. Topping out into warm sun and wonderful views over to the big Torridon peaks. Only the easier graded gully lines in the area are holding snow. There was some thin ice on some of the crags and not much left on Fuar Tholl. I basked in the sun on the top. Lunch with not even a breeze. What a joy with no need for hat and gloves whilst having a butty. Strolling down has the sun went down on a beautiful day. More please :)
