parked overnight at The Old Man of Storr car park and in glorious weather but quite brisk wind finally made a one way traverse all the way up the Trotternish ridge. Came off it before Bioda Mor as I'd summitted it before and I wanted to get up Cleat and take a look at the two tricky other two little TuMPs off under the eastern cliffs. Great day had a sting in the tail. never got a lift and faced a gruelling 13 miles walk back which added another 5 hours till 2.25am Ouch! Deliriously tired.vegibagger02/06/2017
Uig- Beinn Edra- Hartaval- Kensaleyre traverse of the central part of the Trotternish ridge. Without lifts/ arranged pickups, this proved highly feasible using the much improved bus service from Portree. This leg simply used the old turbary road above Glen Conan. It's being developed as a hydro board road (care: you may want to check it isn't an active building site). There is still no path from where it ends to Bealach Uig but it gave a fast approach. It felt good to be on the ridge, though the summit view was through a veil of cloudpwheeler17/06/2016
