Dropped a Glove on Crowberry?

Whoever dropped a glove on Crowberry Gully recently please get in touch with a description and a couple of quid for return. Hope you right hand was not too cold.

Marie Curie Mountain Challenge

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

Yesterday on Skye was fortunately not very extreme weather. Today would have been rather worse. Marie Curie had a successful trek through Glen Sligachan from Kirkibost to finish with Soup Rolls and ‘possibly’ something a little stronger at the Sligachan Hotel. We experienced a mixture of sun, rain and windy weather and it was wet underfoot. Well done to Marie Curie and all of the participants who took part in this trek. Hopefully another similar Marie Curie challenge on Skye will take place next year.

The trek is not to demanding and travels between the majestic, towering pinnacles of the Red and Black Cuillin. Time taken to complete the walk varied between four and six hours. The path is good but can be very damp underfoot in anything other than warm dry spells of weather, so come prepared with good footwear and waterproofs!

A view from the Skye Ridge looking down on Glen Sligachan. The simple walking route for the MarieĀ  Curie mountain challenge follows the glen floor and does not have any real difficulties. The well marked walking path can be see in the valley bottom in this photo above.
