We are still interested of course, but it would have be two places as we're not divorcing :wink:

Please let me know how it's solved :D

The most he can take is four.

He also advised to book asap as availability can change very quickly for that time of year. So if anybody's scouting other guiding options then it's probably a good idea not to spend too long mulling it over. It's a Saturday in the middle of July :wink:

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:



Thanks Ross, I have enquired re other guides and no one will take more than 4 per guide for the Cuillens, so we will have to look at the bigger guiding companies for larger groups I have a couple of enquiries out at the moment, My group is between 7 and 9 but may have varying needs. I know Paddy very well and he wont take more than 4 so 2 places with an excellent guide available as I dont want to split my group if I can help it.
As also said the Saturday Sunday will be busy weather dependant on the Pinn so there could be some long waits.

Hi ML,

I expect to come (who can resist an excuse to spend time on Skye), and will be camping.

Hope you've placed the necessary weather order with the Met Office.... :D

Hello Lady with the van.... You can take the van to the hostel :)

If I should receive more reservations, the two smaller 'bothy' bunkhouses are also still available for rent.

Hi,

Any room at the Inn for Big Tommo, the wife (AmandaJMackenzie) and I for this weekend? If not I'll bring the tent and hope for good weather.

Cheers,

John.

Hi Maja,

As long as there isnt a Scoob & Fi-sized hurricane, I will be doing the tent thing.
