I am on Skye now for our annual pilgrimage to the best scrambling in the UK – the Cuillin Ridge. I have been joined by friends and fellow instructors Huw, Dave and Sandy and between us we are looking after Claire, Steven, Thien, Julia, Martin, Cath, Tom and Laura – many of whom are here for repeat visits which is always really nice. Today I teamed up with Claire and Steven and we enjoyed a trip uptown An Dorus and the wonderful scrambling from there to Banachdaich. Skye is definitely my favourite mountaineering in the UK and it never disappoints, even after 24 consecutive years of trips!
