Prior to attending the Moray Mountaineering Club's
New Year meet in Kintail, I decided to head across to Skye for a few days.
As is often the case on Skye, on awaking this morning it was raining and the
cloud was down fairly low. The weather was however set to improve later in
the morning but leaving insufficient time to ascend anything substantial
e.g. something on the Cuillin ridge. I therefore opted to ascend one of my
seven remaining unclimbed Sub2000ft Marilyns on the island.
wanted to ascend Ben Meabost, above Elgol, for a number of years but had
just never got round to it. I decided to remedy that today. I parked in the
small parking area at the start of the track which leads to Camasunary.
