This year on Skye, we had stunning whether and stunning views. (Similar to 2 years ago, when I was last there - I think I must carry good whether in my rucksack!)... perhaps just lucky, it rained the day MPS drove up and the day they left.
Let the Photo's speak for themselves:
An Stac, and it's scree slope. If you look carefully, you can also make out the Inaccessible Pinnacle.

An since I'm writing this report, he is a picture of me from behind. Thankfully I didn't give anyone food poisoning on this trip and everyone was complimentary of my cooking; part of the trip experience with MPS is spanking good food. N.B(I've been using the word spanking a lot lately to describe good things .... :>S ....)
Playing at the fairy pools
If your legs are too tired to do any more walking, or even if they are not, you MUST visit the fairy pools whilst on Skye. The fairy pools are rated as one of the best places for Open Water Swimming, including a natural water slide, rock bridge and plunge pool. A recommended way to start is by bouldering out over the water. Unless you are Ben Moon, you will soon be wet and the fun really begins. I learnt that heal hooking without rock shoes can result in cut heels. MPS discovered the fairy pools last year on Skye, when the whether was not so good for climbing; only after finding out how awesome they were did we realize they are rated highly by open water swimmers; being so remote however they don't see many visitors. MPS trips always have adventures and discoveries, I think this is one of the things that makes them so much fun!
