Wet on Skye

Today I was up on Skye in preparation for some work there later next week. The forecast was supposed to clear up but I headed from the Glen Brittle Memorial hut in pretty heavy rain and by Coire na Bannachdich it was only getting worse. I persevered on over Bannachdich, Greadhaidh (no view but the best it had been all day, see first pic), Mhadaidh (brief view, second pic), its 4 tops, Bidian Druim nan Ramh (better view near last top, third pic) and - of course - as I was nearing the Sligachan (descended Fionn Coire from just past Bruach na Frithe) the ridge cleared off completely!
I'll live in hope of drier weather for late next week - jusy now I'm trying to get the yellowdye from my builders gloves off of my hands!
