Some years, the transition from winter to summer seems to take a while, whereas others, it seems to happen almost overnight and this year is definitely one of the latter. The weather in the Highlands recently has been incredible, with wall-to-wall sunshine almost everyday. When it's like this, there really is no better place in the world!
Ben and Paul (both fully qualified Mountaineering & Climbing Instructors) kicked off our Skye season this year, with a team of motivated and determined hillwalkers, keen to get some of the Cuillin Munros ticked off over four days. For the first day, they enjoyed a brilliant day on the southern Munros; Sgurr nan Eag and Sgurr Dubh Mor. On day two, they climbed through the clouds to enjoy an inversion on Sgurr a' Mhadaidh and Sgurr a'Ghreadaidh. Yesterday, with tired legs and thick mist and drizzle, they tackled Sgurr na Banachdich. For their final day, they made the most of the better than expected weather, by tackling Sgurr Mhic Choinnich and the In Pinn.
There's very little snow on the Cuillin this year (unlike last year), so no winter kit was required.
If you fancy tackling all 11 Munros on the main Cuillin Ridge over 4 days, with fully qualified Mountaineering & Climbing Instructors, we have availability on the following courses (£489):
7-10 May (1 space)
10-13 September (3 spaces)
