Doing the Cuillins was always getting put off but as myself, Jimmy and Mo were nearing compleation it was time for a decision from Mo and she eventually gave in and organized a guide. Well done Mo. So with guide booked earlier in the year and met the previous evening, it was time for Skye. We were doing the southern three first, starting from Glen Brittle where a good path takes you beyond the Lochan. It was now over rougher rockier terrain to our first summit, Sgurr nan Eag and then Sgurr Dubh Mor and Sgurr Alasdair. All i'll say about the route was it was rocky, scrambly and damn good fun. This was a great intro to Skye with lovely weather and no wind.
