Circular via Old Man etc - WalkHighlands routeCrib Goch14/07/2017
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

Week on Skye with Mum. Visibility approx 10m. Not an easy hill to climb in such!

Pete and I walked from Portree via Sithean Bhealaich Chumhaing then took the popular route through a plantation and past the Old Man of Storr/ Sanctuary. Windy and cloudy on the top, views through gaps in the cloud and all day when below 1800 ft. We returned down Bealach Mor and the A855- rough and barely any traffic in 1985.pwheeler26/05/1985
