A Visit to Skye

Bla Bheinn

Later this week I'm off to the Isle of Skye for a John Muir Trust meeting. The JMT owns three adjoining estates on Skye and it'll be interested in hearing and seeing what is happening there. The forecast isn't good but I'm still hoping to climb Bla Bheinn, have a couple of nights wild camping and visit Camasunary to see the new bothy and, of course, just to revel in that wonderful place. Pictures and report when I return.

  1. Hope you have a great trip. I will be interested to hear your opinion about the amount of plastic debris washed up at Camusunary. I was there in May during my Skye Trail trip (blog on Walk Highlands under Papa Smurf's Skye Trail). The amount of debris washed up illustrates the problem of marine pollution and I wondered if a freak tidal action or something is giving the bay more than its fair share of flotsam and jetsam. Takes the edge off a wonderful place. Someone else on Walk Highlands recently posted similar comments. The new bothy looks great and just needed some work to fix the muddy surroundings when I passed.
