I think that I was lucky with the weather. This is the third year I have been to Skye in November and always had good weather. But, I think I was lucky with the weather. On the top it was about 12 c with hardly a breeze, I think I saw midges on the descent!

did sgurr nan Eag and sgurr duh mor yesterday (sat 16th june) with Rocket-ron and Mackenzie and i quickly realised that these 2 munro`s required alot of respect due to the scrambling required altho the terrain underfoot was greatly reliable for good grip as mentioned in many reports. i must admit i felt a little out of my depth whilst acsending the boulder fileds and onto the more tricky scrambles coupled with the clag which didnt really lift the whole time we were up so photo ops were zero, so my conclusion is try do these 2 in good weather to make the climb worth while.
