Winter on Skye

Today I was back out With Mike from Skye Guides and this time we were out with Chris. I looked after Chris today with Mike sharing his local knowledge about the area we were in. Today's objectives were Sgurr a' Mhadaidh (the Foxes Peak) and Sgurr a' Ghreadaidh (Peak of the thrashing or mighty winds). We approached up through Coire An Dorus then up into An Dorus (The Door) and headed north onto Mhadaidh. From here we retraced out steps then continued onto Ghreadaidh wandering past the Wart. From the summit we retraced our steps back down to the Eag Dubh (black notch) and descended this which was filled with soft snow and was great fun. Again today we seemed to have all seasons in one day, resulting in a great day! I'm starting to believe that you always have a good day on Skye! Its defiantly the case for me!
