More Skye magic

A great day out yesterday before the weather change with Pete and Robbie. To celebrate Pete's imminent birthday the pair of them joined me on the Inaccessible Pinnacle for the day. There was a little mist as we topped out which then burnt off. I had a sociable day chatting with Derek and his team of friends doing a 1 day traverse, Mike and his team ticking some quality Munros and Tamsin her party with the same mission as us. After celebrating what is always an atmospheric climb we discussed options and decided to drop into Coire Lagan to sunbathe and admire the turquoise waters of the Lochain before retiring to the cool of the Sligachan Bar.

Hi Alan. Thank you so much for guiding me and Robbie up and off the Inn Pin. It was a truly brilliant day! Stunning weather in a stunning environment - what more could we ask for?
Well, on top of that we were in the hands of a true professional and all round good chap. Informative chat about botany, history and technical details of the immediate and wider aspects of getting around steep places- Fantastic!
We look forward to more in the future
Thanks again. Pete and Robbie Harris
