England was enjoying a hot spell of weather during the Easter weekend, so there wasn't any snow lying. Must be somewhere in the Highlands then.

I very nearly gave the clue that you can probably see it from where you're standing - but yes.

Your turn

OK, I doubt this will take very long, but here goes.

What is the name of the higher (and further) of the peaks you can see.

The "Moel" bit is right, but it's not Siabod. It's less lofty than Siabod.
