Snowy Skye.


The Bad step on Am Bhastier

A day on Skye today with Jon for Skye Guides. The drive up this morning didn't fill me with much hope as lasts nights heavy rain had fallen as snow on the highest summits. Thankfully when we arrived at Bealach a Bhasteir it was just just a dusting and wasn't going to cause us a problem. We ascended Am Bhasteir via the East ridge and came back down the same way then headed over to tackle the more difficult West ridge of Sgurr nan Gillean. When we arrived at the summit we were greeted with a fantastic view as the clouds lifted. We descended via the Tourist route and Jon has now ticked off two further Munros. There were a number of snow showers through the day but the snow was starting the strip back in the afternoon.
