Back to work today and the choice of venue was the sea cliffs of Elgol.  I took the Younger family, all of whom have never climbed on rock. Sophie, Malcolm, Elizer and Annabel all kept hopes high as we walked in through the rain and climbed Fertility Right (Severe) in the rain.  Fortunately the rain subsided and the rock dried super quickly some everyone climbed Fertility Left (VS 4c) and we finished on one of the classics of the crag Jamie Jampot (VS 4c).  Unsurprisingly we had the crag to ourselves, we had a great view of the Cuillin and turned out to be a brilliant day.  Its hard not to love climbing when you climb at Elgol!
