Back on Skye.

I've been back on Skye again for Skye Guides over the last couple of days. Friday I headed out with Sam and Gordon and with the weather set to improve as the day went on we had a later start and headed straight up to the In Pinn. It was still covered in cloud and quite gusty as we set off up but the wind did start to drop and the cloud started to lift. We then headed round An Stac and climbed Sgurr Mhic Choinnich and at this point the cloud lifted to reveal the whole ridge and the first time Sam and Gordon had been on the ridge and been able to see it all.

Yesterday I was working with James Edwards and a group of seven friends who were out to get the Northern three munros. We made our way in as a group and then split and went our separate ways. We did Am Basteir first and then Sgurr nan Gillean and then dropped round to walk up to Brauch na Frithe. We descended the North West ridge in very think cloud that didn't break until we were almost back at the Slig Hotel. I've got a few days at Outward Bound this week and then heading to the Alps for some fun.
