“Is this how glaciers get started?” asks reader. A stunning world of snow tunnels, caves and bridges towering higher than a double-decker buses still lingers after a cold summer in the Cairngorms National Park. The Scottish mountains have seen a growing number of snow patches remaining since 2007, but more snow has lingered this summer than in at least 20 years. The results are these vast caverns, sometimes so big that people can walk underneath. Back in April, Glencoe ski resort received a late dump of around 70cm of fresh snow prompting some to claim that, at the time, it offered the “best powder on the planet”.
