Stag Do

Getting geared up
Today I was back on the Isle of Skye but doing some slightly different work. Today I was working with Mike and we were were controlling a group of 10 blokes on a stag do. Original plans were to head up the Inn Pinn but unfortunately the winds were high and it was wet so we opted for an ascent of Sgurr an Fheadain instead. The North East ridge provided the group with a good challenge up to the summit, th wind was still strong even though we were off the main ridge. Our decent took us into Coir' a' Mhadaidh and onto the fairy pools where we initially threw the Stag in and then one by one, we all jumped in. You can tell summer is on its last legs, the water was freezing! After briskly walking back to the cars to warm up we headed down to the Old Inn for a well earned beer.

Ready for some steeper ground

Air time and wet time!
