It is normal for the snows to remain on the mountains until July.
The above photographs were taken in June of this year. It was warm and sunny in the glen and the temperature reached 26 C. On the mountain the temperature was just above freezing.
We went hiking in the mountains on two consecutive days this week. On Monday, the temperature in the glen was 25 C and there was no wind.
In the mountains above the loch it was windy and only 16 C.
On Tuesday we went up the mountain again and you can see the loch from the earlier photograph down below. The temperature on top of the mountain was the same as in the glen: 26 C. There was no wind either. This is extremely rare!
