Skye Munros Course - Day 1

Skye Munros Course – Day 1

With such a good weather forecast, Steve and I thought that we should capitalise on it, by tackling Sgurr Mhic Choinnich, The In Pinn and Sgurr na Banachdich for the first day of our four day Skye Munros Course.

We made steady progress up the An Stac Screes and from Bealach Lagan, made a return journey to the summit of Sgurr Mhic Choinnich. Despite the sunshine, there was quite a chilly easterly breeze, which was particularly noticeable on the crest and Coruisk side of the ridge. We continued beneath An Stac, before tackling the In Pinn, which was surprisingly quiet. Following an ascent of the East Ridge and abseil descent of the West Ridge, we walked over the Sgurr na Banachdich, bagging the third Munro of the day.

We had a bit of graupel (snow) on the descent, but it clearly had been much wetter down at Glenbrittle Campsite.

We still have spaces on our final Skye Munros Course of the season, running 10-13 September 2019, so get in touch if you fancy tackling all the Munros on the main Cuillin Ridge.
