I'm G-Coe now in the youth hostel supping Guinness waiting for tomorrow but was in Loch Tulla area this afternoon in the best walking and photo conditions I've seen for yonks, only saw one soul all day and he was a photographer from Ayrshire way.

Not at Glencoe at the moment however thinking of proabably going later this week or next week. What is the snow and the roads currently like? I am currently in the Peak District taking pics at the moment and they keep closing a few of the roads and when they are open I have nearly got stuck a few times so I am a bit worried what it will be like in Scotland.

I know its hard to believe but the roads from tyndrum all the way up to glencoe are clear and no ice on them. I was very surprised perhaps my local council should take a look at how to clear snow and ice

Just back from Glen Coe today. The roads are clear all the way up from Crianlarich and there is snow from the roadside to the tops in most places.

Take care if you're going up high as there is a lot of windslab at the moment with a pretty decent chance of avalanches. I think the avalanche risk will get worse later in the week.

Mostly overcast today which was a shame but still well worth the early rise to get some decent winter photographs. If you get the chance - go for it while the arctic conditions last!

Yes, just to concur with Ian. Walking in nigh-on knee high snow can be very dangerous especially if you are off the beaten track. Hidden ice and deep holes being particularly hazardous as I found out a few times over the weekend... ouch my knee.
