The mountain in Glencoe where four people died in an avalanche yesterday was considered to carry a "considerable" level of risk - but this would equate to a medium risk on the European scale used by mountain rescue teams, according to ITV News' Scotland Correspondent Debi Edward.
Bidean Nam Bian is a popular peak standing over 3,000 feet with a number of different climbs. It is understood the conditions yesterday were reasonably dry, as Glencoe has largely escaped the snow experienced elsewhere in the UK.
Officials are set to launch an investigation to determine what caused the avalanche. Experts say a snowslide can be triggered by just one person.
