An "easy" walk on Skye???? I don't think so!

Posted on

Gordon and I spent a wonderful few days on the Isle of Skye, staying with Marie and Ian at The Spoons B&B. The weather was lovely and we decided to go for a "little" walk on three hills near Broadford known as the Broadford Red Hills.

This is me on the first of the three, Beinn na Caillich with the ridge to the second, Beinn Dearg Mhor, straight ahead and Blaven and the Cuillins behind. There is a good description of the walk on Walk Highlands , including mention of the extremely steep scree slope which we had to negotiate to reach hill number three, Beinn Dearg Bheag.....and goodness, it was indeed very steep!

Although none of the hills on this walk are Munros (the highest is 732 metres) there are a few tricky bits on the way round the circuit and I would not recommend it for novice hillwalkers.......but what wonderful views!!!
