I should be able to make an appearance for this one. Will probably tie it in with my annual July tour. Will camp and bring a shed load of wood.

We may be interested, too, Dibs. Me and Kevin. We could even come to Skye on Thursday if necessary.

I wonder how big can a group be for the In Pinn?

I think they can take 3 up at a time (this was certainly the case with us a few years back) so there would be a fair bit of hanging about, but there is plenty of time in summer.

Quick update.

All bed have been reserved. Still waiting for 5 payments.

Send an e-mail to the owner to find out if the other accommodation on site is still available.

Also inquired if it is OK to bring vans.

Will be back with the answers!

Ok, I wasn’t expecting quite such a positive response to the guided In Pinn idea! :lol:

The other Ross contacted me on Friday evening to register his interest so we’ve gone ahead and booked Paddy McGuire for the Saturday. Paddy can take four so that leaves two vacant slots but Dibs has first dibs :wink: on those because he was the next person to get in touch with me. Paddy is quite happy to hold those two places for us until the day of the climb. I’ll leave it up to Dibs what happens with those two slots.

Thereafter, i’m afraid the law of the jungle will be invoked and you’ll all have to sort it out amongst yourselves 8) :lol:
