Torridon and Beinn Alligin

The snow predicted for coastal hills today didn't arrive; rather it was cloudy with a very light fall of anow flake for about 5 mins. Otherwise we were again treated to perfect blue sky, sunshine and only a breath of wind to remind us that it was winter.
We went to Beinn Alligin which is in fantastic condition. We ascended Deep South gully and then turned right at the top crossing the horns and doing the full traverse.
Snow stabitity was very good and deep south gully is probably the best route of its grade that i have done in 15 years of winter climbing in Scotland period. We have been running out of adjectives and superlatives to describe the conditions this week. We are on Beinn Eighe tomorrow.
