It does sound a bit half baked. Interesting, but half baked! :lol:


Boat from arnisdale to barrisdale, climb LB and get picked up at a pre arranged time. Should be doable

We done that a few weeks ago £35 straight across or £55 to Barrisdale. The route up Ladher Bheinn is steep but easy enough

Hmmm. Sounds like it's getting more and more baked .... a bit of an adventure. What could possibly go wrong?!

It is the Corbett that I'm after! I would like to share the ferry if space allows!

Quick update: the hostel is now full, and there are several campers. Maybe another camper could be slotted in - not really sure how much room is left for that, but there are some spots down by the loch if I remember correctly.

I'm sure there is enough green grass around the hostel :lol:

We don't have any specific plans, but aiming for the full ridge traverse of Beinn Fhada, hopefully Saturday will be good weather-wise.

Hi - it looks like I'm going to be able to make another meet at last - it seems a long time since Skye last year.

I'll be camping so will take pot-luck either beside the loch or back at the Shiel Bridge site.

I'm going to be arriving some point on Thursday with the dog, we'll be camping (probably just outside by the loch) that night, however, whoever is manning the email has said the dog is more than welcome to come in and say hello to everyone

A Sunday Corbett? you ask - bien sur monsieur Graeme - and Friday and Saturday ones too.

Am Bathach (Friday) and Beinn nan Caorach / Beinn na Eaglaise above Arnisdale (Saturday) are on my radar, with the possibility of a Beinn Loinne traverse on Sunday.

The Beinn Loine traverse on Sunday is a fine idea with a couple of cars (one at each end I mean, not taking them over the top). :lol:
