I’ve always loved the Scottish highlands. The hills are an incredible shade of green and the sky usually dons an impressive display, almost as if it is in a constant battle with itself over whether to shine brightly with sun or poor with rain, resulting in continuously dramatic cloudscapes.
So I was pretty excited to head off with a group of friends and fellow adventurers to climb the Isle of Skye’s notorious ‘In Pinn’ earlier this month.
The trek to reach the pinnacle was incredible, and the view seemed to get more spectacular with every turn, almost as if we were in the deep reaches of the Peruvian mountains or some otherworldly place. When we finally reached the peak, looking over the ridge revealed an incredible mountain-scape, where we could literally see clouds rolling over the peaks and into the valley below – easily one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen!
And of course, the climb to the top of the pinnacle itself was pretty epic, and revealed the best view of all. Here are a few photos of some of the climbing action that went down!
