Another good one BP with your usual superb photo's :clap: :clap:
Agree with the previous comments about the lack of snow :shock:

I am one of Simon B's co-pilots in May, the thought of walking in the Cuillins is rather scary, I'm going for safety in numbers - never abseiled though :roll:

So many kind comments, thank you all! :D :D :D

I'm warming up to the more difficult peaks on Skye. One week of hols in May, two weeks in June, so beware Skye mountains, the meowing one is coming :lol: :lol:

On a serious note, we have climbed all Red Cuillin summits, but some of them are well worth repeating in winter conditions, just to mention Marsco, The Deargs and Garbhein (technically, the last one is a Black Cuillin, but I'd fancy it in snow, Kevin had done it and he came down alive so I can do it too :lol: ).

The magic of Skye is not only in the mountains, I think I will never tire of the island. It's a special place.

Re: the lack of snow - the white stuff is now back! We visited Glen Affric on Saturday and walked in a whiteout for a couple of hours... I hope spring returns soon!
