Early bird catches the worm: In Pinn, Skye


I enjoyed another great day in amongst the Cuillin Hills of Skye. Today, I was out with John, Matt, Leon and Jimmy, who had their sights set on the In Pinn. With it being a Saturday and with the slight risk of thunder in the afternoon, we opted for an early-ish start, and so enjoyed the In Pinn to ourselves.

With mist swirling around the In Pinn, it all felt quite atmospheric as I ascended with John and Leon. Unfortunately, the views were somewhat obscured during their ascent, but the clouds parted whilst father and son; Matt and Jimmy made their way up, giving snippets of views over to Sgurr Mhic Choinnich and Coire Lagan.

Having got the whole team up and over before the only other party we saw all day arrived, we headed over the Sgurr Na Banachdich, before descending Coir’ an Eich and out to Glenbrittle.

Despite a few spots of rain, it was a very pleasant day, with no sign of incoming storms.
