The start of the month marked another stint of Cuillin action, kicking off working for Abacus Mountain Guides with Kate and Tim who were only on their honeymoon! They simply lucked out with a couple of dry, calm days amongst allot of rain, this meant we could go ahead and attempt a traverse carrying all our kit which allowed us plenty of flexibility. Im not sure who had more fun but I loved it. Both should be super proud with their efforts but especially Kate who isn’t used to heights never mind scrambling at the highest level.

I then had two days work for West Coast Mountain Guides with John, Mark, Donald and Jacqueline. We were treated to more excellent weather for an ascent of the In Pinn and Sgùrr MhicChoinnich before a steady descent of Bomb Ally which a the name suggests is a little loose…… Day two was a more typical Skye day so without Jacqueline this time the boys went for a more crusiy day on Bruach na Frithe. Well done everyone!

Sunday was the final day in this medley, when I was joined by Emily, Tracey and Nicki. Two of the ladies had ran the Skye half marathon the day before and Nicki isnt too keen on air beneath the feet so on what was an extremely wet day (even for Skye) we decided on Bruach na Frithe and a wade back to the van! That wrapped up that wee stint, tomorrow I head back for more………
