Skye Cuillins

After 3 days of storm force winds and torrential rain as well yesterday i have finally managed to get up some of the Munros on Skye.

Today was very warm, very wet and very windy (a notch down from the storm force winds and rain) which made it a more normal Skye day.

We aimed for the northern peaks of Bruach nan Frithe and Am Basteir. The girls were quick on their feet and we made swift progress up to the top of Bruach nan Frithe to test the weather, which was very wet and windy.

We then ropped up and carefully scrambled to the top of Am Basteir amongst the gusts and waterfalls. As we descended the wind increased markedly and our waterproofs were giving up so we decided to head down to dry off and make better use of the dryer weather over the next few days.

If you would like to scramble up the Skye peaks next year then please have a look here, https://www.thehighlandmountaincompany.co.uk/skye
