Skye Munros, southern 4

After rejigging the days due to the weather at the start of the week we aimed for Sgurr nan Eag, Sgurr Dubh Mor, Sgurr Alastair and Sgurr MhicChoinnich.

With the sun poking through we made the walk into Coir a Ghrunnda and then over the boulders up to Sgrr nan Eag, the most southerly munro. It was here that the cloud descended and a fine mist started to fall, but not enough to make the rock wet.

We then made swift progress around to Sgurr Dubh Mor and on to Sgurr Alastair by mid afternoon. With the rock becoming greasy and a few teams already moving on Sgurr Thearlaich, i decided to descend the great stone shoot and ascent Bomb ally to then gain Sgurr MhicChoinnich via Collies ledge.

The girls did well moving over the tricky and intricate ground and we made the summit after a good section of scrambling.

If you want to ascend the Skye munros then have a look at our courses for next year. https://www.thehighlandmountaincompany.co.uk/4-days-munro-course
