ALL SET FOR ANOTHER BUSY SEASON
The Cuillin seem as popular as ever for the coming summer season. Fingers crossed the Jet-stream will head south again this year and leave us with the same dry sunny weather that we enjoyed in 2012. From mid-March til mid-July the number of wet days could be counted on 2 hands and most of August was also superb.
Our team this year is a mix of faces new and old, all professional mountaineers with a real passion for the Cuillin that can’t wait to show you our special mountains.
Winter kicked off very early with a huge dump of snow in early November and has continued to be superb pretty much ever since. Climbing with a record number of winter clients our guides have had some incredible days.
The days traversing sections of the Ridge have been sublime with stunning climbing, situations and views. Something of a Cuillin renaissance has seen far more visiting climbers, many turning out new routes ranging from easy to desperate. The great news is that it is still very rare to see another soul here in winter; there’s lots to do & plenty of space for everyone! Over 40 BLOG entries from the past 3 months should provide plenty of inspiration to come and play next winter.
CALENDARS, MUGS AND T-SHIRTS.
Many thanks to all of you who bought the 2013 calendars. We sold out at Christmas but have had enough enquiries since then to put together another small order. Please let us know if you would like to add to this order by e-mailing us asap. For the 2014 calendar we aim to use some of the best shots sent to us by clients through the coming season.
We often receive requests for presents and souvenirs so a small selection of Skye Guides t-shirts and mugs will be available this year. Collect from the office when you are up on holiday or order direct for home delivery. We’ll have a dedicated page on the website once we are up and running.
