Skye adventures

Sea Eagles and loose women! Two inches of new snow on the Black Cuillin tops today (11th May). This last week we avoided the snow and wet high tops by using the new and very good Scottish Mountaineering Club climbing guide to Skye Outcrops and Sea Cliffs. Paddling into some locations and making the most of the sheltered side of the island on a daily basis, we avoided any really bad weather, especially on Wednesday last. The photos tell the story but top marks go to Suidhe Biorach beside Elgol, where we met Tom Prentice (SMC guidebook editor) by chance using the new guide. For truly loose and chossy conditions please avoid Macleod’s Maidens (Old Lady – HVS, 4c)
