Robin on Sron Ulladale

Sailing and climbing holiday

This last week Robin and I headed west for an adventure. We drove over to Skye and set sail for Harris on the Western Isles. We had a pleasant sail over in our Wayfarer dingy and headed up into the hills to find Sron Ulladale.

We had a great couple of days rock climbing. It is an incredible crag and we had some amazing hot weather. Our journey back wasn't quite so relaxing as the Minch was unusually windless and we had to row for the majority of our return crossing.

I have put some more photos on my Facebook Page: Sail and Climb trip Facebook photo album
