Only a couple of cars when I got to the car park, paid £2 for a ticket and set off. 10 mins later I realised the ticket was still in my pocket so had to return & leave it on the dashboard d'oh! Nice view of Driesh from this part of the walk though:
Jock's road branches to the right:
Bridge over the White Water.
Continue through trees with glimpse of crags above:
Then it suddenly opens out to Corrie Fee:
Good path to follow, crags on the left:
And to the right:
Might be a scramble up here?
Winding Fee Burn:
Steps in the path as it gets steeper, waterfall ahead:
Path crosses a snow bank here, easy steps to follow but it looked a bit exposed if you took a slip.
More snow patches higher up:
Views from the top of Mayar:
Over to Driesh, looking more like a grassy lump from this angle:
Cornice on the approach to Driesh:
Breaking cornice from above & Mayar:
Views from Driesh:
Back to the cornice and the descent path going diagonally down into Corrie Kilbo.
On the descent path:
Then back into the trees, and more easy path to follow.
Didn't even need gloves today, sun cream would have been useful though

So glad you posted this. I had planned to do this walk at the weekend but the forecast was atrocious so will probably do it at the weekend or next week. I was wondering what the snow was like here....and now I know
