Stupendous Skye

I've just spent four amazing days on Skye, my first visit to any of the Scottish islands. Quite simply blown away by the beauty of the landscape and the scope of things to do. I will write the weekend up but here are some pictures to tide the Site over.

A bivi by Loch Linnhe on the way up

 Unbelievable boiler plate slabs of Gabbro in Coir' a' Ghrunnda

 Sgurr Alaster and Sgurr Mich Choinnich

Looking for dinner

 The wilderness

 We were quite happy at this point
