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!!!

It has been our absolute pleasure to share our home, garden, love of Scotland and of food, with guests over the past 14 years. The experience of running our B&B exceeded our wildest dreams however we - Carol, Gordon (& The Cake Fairy) - have hung up our aprons for the last time.

Thank you to the wonderful guests from all over the world who have stayed with us. You have given us so many special memories which we will always treasure. Thank you too, everyone else who has supported us: your confidence in us was appreciated more than words can say.

Warmest Wishes to All,
Carol, Gordon..and The Cake Fairy x
