Skye - Scrambling Course 30-07-12

Just had a few great days on Skye.  I was running a Scrambling Course for

We had a very mixed forecast but the days out proved to be better than expected, that said we did have some heavy showers with hail and a cool NW wind.  We had an instructional day on the Spur on Sgurr an Fheadain, we did the Coire Lagan round taking in Sgurr Alasdair, Sgurr Thearlaich and Sgurr Mhic Choinnich via Collies Ledge.  On the final day we did the Inn Pinn, this day was a bit of a surprise as we had expected the weather to be much worse than it was and we had a few 'plan b's'...
