Oban and surrounding area is free of snow!

Office bound today, but the drive to it was very special this morning.

We currently don't have any snow here, but it is exceptionally cold!

Loch Etive was mirror like and Ben Cruachan has plenty of cover so the back corries and buttresses should have some good climbing in them.

Folk seem to be getting excited about a bumper winter, time will tell but for now I am getting reports of Great ski touring on the East and West is best for climbing. The surf forecast is pretty good and at this time of the year water feels reasonably warm. I saw sea kayakers on loch Awe this morning and Plastic boaters at the Dam car park! We do live in one the finest country's for outdoor adventure in the World.
Karen sent me the photo of the Cullin's on Skye looks in fine condition.
