Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill - May 2012
Winter returns, snow showers and blue sky and sun alternating every 10 minutes

           It snowed quite a bit overnight. Looking towards the summit of Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill from Meallan Liath Beag.  Hiding behind a large wind sculpted rock for shelter  Quinaig and all the coastal hills missed out on the snow!  Winter climbing possibilities in Coire Loch?  Rock with funny hole in. Sunglasses being used as we didn't think that goggles would be needed in May...  Foinaven in the distance  Looking towards the summit from the ridge joining Carn Dearg and Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill  More crags in Coire Loch  Heading for the summit with Meall Garbh in the distance  Approaching the summit of Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill  Foinaven in the distance  Ben Stack and Arkle  Heading down, another shower to the left  Following the rock outcrops down the hill.  What made this print?  Meall Liath Beag - the first hill we skirted round on the way up  Allt an Reinidh which we followed down the hill  Allt an Reinidh  Ben stack from the walk out  Our hill, most of the snow has melted by the time we've walked out
