Walking on the Isle of Skye

The Cioch, Isle of Skye.

An ambition as yet unfulfilled! An evening on the Cioch watching the sun sink in the West!

Beinn Dearg Mhor, Isle of Skye.

Delightful walk from Sligachan, Beinn Dearg Mhor is a superb viewpoint!

Clach Glas, Bla Bheinn ridge, Isle of Skye.

Fantastic traverse requiring a good head for heights! One of the classic ridge walks in Scotland.

Cuillin Ridge from Elgol.

The Cuillin Ridge from Elgol is one of the images that appear year after year on Calendars from Scotland. The coastal walk to Camasunary is very special!

Coir a' Ghrunnda, Isle of Skye.

One of the most atmospheric places I've ever been, when shrouded in mist. It reminded me of being in a cathedral - wide open and yet enclosed at the same time - amazing!

Bothy at Camasunary.

The Bothy at Camasunary must have one of the best situations in the whole of the Isle of Skye. Situated between Bla Bheinn and the main Cuillin Ridge it is absolutely perfect!

Gars-bheinn and Camasunary.

The start of the Cuillin ridge traverse, Gars-bheinn, although not a munro, is a shapely mountain.

Druim nan Ramh Ridge.

Another ambition is to climb the ridge of Druim nan Ramh and after joining the main ridge, climb anti clockwise to return to Camasunary.

Trotternish Ridge.

Not on the same scale as the Cuillin ridge but remarkable in its own way. Still to walk the full length of the ridge, but amazed by the surreal images of the Quiraing, and the Old Man of Storr!
