Mountaineeing on Skye

Today was Fabian and Erik's last day and they wanted to see what all the fuss was about with the Black Cuillin.  Unfortunately they couldn't see what it was all about but we did get a good feel of it!  We headed up to the Inn Pinn but I decided they should come back and do it another time as it was very wet and greasy but more alarmingly it was very windy.  So we missed out the Inn Pinn and headed south onto Sgurr Mhic Choinnich, along Collies Ledge, and up and over onto Sgurr Alasdair.  After leaving the car, we hit the cloud level at 300m, we were in the cloud all day and didnt get out of it until we got down to 200m above sea level.  So we didnt see much but had a great scramble along a great section of ridge and had a good scree run down the Great Stone Shoot.  A good wet finish to my 3 days with Fabian and Erik.
