A quick day on Skye

Yesterday I got and early start for Skye where I was working with Delegates to UHI's Adventure Tourism Conference. I was asked to take 3 academics out for a quick day's mountaineering and we went to the Inaccessible Pinnacle. The weather was better than expected and although there was a lot of cloud cover it stayed dry other than a little drizzle on the climb itself and the winds were very low. Well done to Carl, Paul and Adele on a fast ascent to be back at Sabhal Mor Ostaig in time for the conference's opening address.
The evening went well too with some great local food, a gaelic quiz and ready steady cook on trangias (DofE groups eat your hearts out- local prawns in ginger with fresh picked wild herbs on a trangia!) to entertain the international team of guests and I saw the night out late on around the fire with a dram and a long chat with Norwegian guides.
