Skye Ridge Attempt

Today I was out with Mike who has an ongoing ambition to traverse the Cullin Ridge.  So we set off at 8am with bags packed and waterproofs on.  Strong winds were causing concern and on approach it was feeling a little bit wild to be teetering along a ridge.  On arrival to Loch Coir' a'Ghrunda there were white horses on the water and whirlwinds of spray which again were showing us that conditions were less than ideal!  So we made the decision to bin the attempt due to the weather and a few other reason but we still went up Sgurr nan Eag just to confirm that our decision was right.  On our decent we passed a few other walkers who planned to do the same and not spend to much time in the foul weather!
