Hill: Ben Lee
Date: Thursday 11th August 2016
Company: Just myself
Distance: 6km, Ascent: 435m
Time: 3Hrs 05Mins
After 24 hours of non-stop rain and low-cloud on Skye, I set off this morning clad in my waterproofs for an ascent of another Sub2000ft Marilyn. I decided to head from my base in Glen Brittle to Sligachan for an ascent of Ben Lee. On reaching Sligachan and looking at the terrain towards Ben Lee, it did not look inviting. I reckoned an out and back from Sligachan would be c.10-12km. On looking at the map, I could see an out and back from Peinachorrain would be only 6-7km. I therefore drove round to Peinachorrain hoping that the terrain on the eastern side of Ben Lee would be better than the terrain on its western flanks.
