Started from the Youth Hostel in Glen Brittle and took the path to Coire a' Ghreadaidh, before making our way up the rocky scree slopes to the col. A scramble is required here for both Munros with us doing Sgurr a Ghreadaidh first before returning to the col. It was another scrambly route along with some steepish slabby sections but you feel fairly secure on the rocky surface of the Cuillins even though there had been overnight rain. We scrambled back to the col before scrambling up the other side and made the short journey to the second Munro, Sgurr Mhadaidh. This was the easier out the two. We then returned to the col and back down after we had summited. Weather wasnt as good today with no views but again there was no wind.

Ah well, I guess it wouldn't be Skye if you got perfect weather everyday - another good day though - cheers :)
