Great day off yesterday visiting Sgurr Sgumain, TD Gap, Sgurr Dubh Mor and then back up Sgurr Alasdair and down the Stone Chute. Even had a lovely sunset near home to finish the day off nicely 😊 #adventure #skye #isleofskye #cuillin #mountains #drama #iphone #getoutside #adventureisoutthere #landscapes #instagram #mountaineering #cuillinridge #sgurralasdair #sgurrdubhmor #scrambling #climbing #climbinguk #scramblinguk #madeofmountains #cuillinbrewery

Sgùrr Alasdair (992 m), the highest mountain on Isle of Skye. Amazing scenery and views! The climb was celebrated with a wee dram of whisky on the summit. #Scotland #Skye #hiking #steep #laphroaig #lore #Whisky #cuillins #sgurralasdair #isleofskye

“let’s go hillwalking in Skye” my dad said. Who knew it would be basically rock climbing! What a belter of a day exploring ⛰ #skye #sgurralasdair #greatstoneshoot #scotland #cuillins

Some progress shots of Sgurr Alasdair. I love working in layers and adding more and more detail. I prefer Acrylic paint, since it dries quickly and has great colour intensity. Should I have left the sky as it was there? I feel like I sometimes overdo it with the clouds. This is definitely something I need to work on. :D #paintinginprogress #acrylic #painting #SgurrAlasdair #Skye #Scotland #artistsofinstagram #paintersofinstagram

The Great Stone Chute on Sgùrr Alasdair. Isle of Skye. This is the easiest way up Skye’s highest peak, a 400 metre scramble up a loose scree slope. This is followed by a further scramble along the ridge to the summit. #greatstonechute #coirelagan #sgurralasdair #blackcuillin #cuillinhills #cuillin #mountains #scree #isleofskye #skye #highland #scotland #uk #europe #landscapephotography #landscape #outdoorphotography #outdoors #naturephotography #nature #ig_scotland #igersscotland #instascotland #insta_scotland #igers #instagood #travel #photooftheday #photography

Skye feels like a very different place to the mountains we’ve walked before. The peaks are incredibly dramatic and not to mention demanding on our legs too! . Had a great experience for our first foray into some of these mountains, look forward to returning soon 👀 . . . . .

Atop Sgurr Alaisdair, 2018, Acrylic I went up Sgurr Alasdair, which is part of the Black Cuillins on Skye, in 2017 and it was a tough walk up, 2 hours of slowly creeping up slippery skree (loose stones of various sizes). But the view was amazing and I took pictures, which I fused together to create this painting. It was part of the 66th Perthshire Art Association Exhibition in the Perth Museum and it was a great feeling to see my painting up on the wall as part of an exhibition. Even though it didn't sell (I'm keeping it for myself now!), it was still worth the experience. I fully recommend anybody who is an artist to become a member of local clubs to get your work out. #SgurrAlasdair #Skye #Scotland #painting #acrylic #landscapes #art #artistsofinstagram #paintersofinstagram #scottishhighlands #perthmuseumandartgallery

Mixed weather on the Cuillin yesterday, but it did make everything look very moody and atmospheric. And we still managed to make it up Sgurr Alasdair, so one more Munro ticked off... #skye #cuillin #sgurralasdair #hillwalking #scotland

Sgùrr Alasdair - 992m. Highest Peak in Isle of Skye. Got lost half way through because of the thick fog and had to back track to find”The Great Stone Chute”, which was the last ascend up to the peak. When they say you got to scramble up “The Great Stone Chute” they weren’t kidding. That shit was scary af, because we could have been hit by loose rock anytime :,). And did I mentioned that we didn’t had much ground on the peak and that one wrong step it would be the best day our lives? #sgurralasdair #isleofskye #mountaineering #mountainsarecalling

Lovely day here with a pretty evening ...but not as colourful as Skye only a few days ago! The warm sun light setting across the mountains made them appear rosy, which I noticed in several spots I painted during the evenings. Here’s a better photo of what I posted at the time. #glenbrittle #glenbrittlecampsite #glenbrittlebeach #pleinair #sketches #sgurralasdair #cuillinridge #cullins #mountain #munro #ink #skye #scotland #vanlife #walkinguk

Last few pictures from Skye after arriving back home. Had a great weekend hiking/climbing with @jpshez @allrounder.fitness and Chris, great club sandwiches and too much cider.

Over 3000ft of hiking ascent every day, for three days, on the Isle of Skye. Near vertical loose rock walls that went on forever, knife edge summits, and of course, a couple of mild hangovers. Pretty sure 4 days of clear sunshine doesn’t happen very often on Skye, wont forget it in a hurry. Thoroughly knackered and quite happy to be spending a day at sea-level. #sgurralasdair #blàbheinn #sgurrnangillean #sligachan #hiking #scrambling #isleofskye #scotland #hashtags #tarnboys #delayedonsetmusclesoreness

Clambered up a third peak in three days on Skye with @jpshez and @allrounder.fitness. Another 900m plus climb with over half on a loose stone gulley. Bloody painful and knackering but an amazing feeling getting up and over the top.

A few pics of yesterday's adventures climbing the In Pinn then along the ridge to Sgùrr Mhic Choinnich and Sgùrr Alasdair. Could not have asked for a better day!

Can’t wait to get scrambling again 😍♥️ It’s inherently dangerous but worth the copious bruises, continuous laughter and the adrenaline - speaks for itself. Working your way up the mountain, hand in hand takes some mental and physical strength. It’s imperative that you select the correct route, identify loose rocks, have a good head for heights and above all - know your limits. Hoping to hit harder grades in the future and conquer more Munros 🥰 #scramblingrocks #sgurralasdair #isleofskyescotland #summeriscoming #adrenaline #adrenalinejunkie #harderbetterfasterstronger #cantwaittoclimb #munro #climbingaddict #adventure #nextchallenge #heavenly #atmyhappiest

Thursday throwback to mountaineering in Skye, August 2017. Looking scruffy from a few day camping and not shaving but happy to have made my first proper mountain summit Sgurr Alasdair and conquering the treat stone chute, with my mate @scottriise_. . . #60northadventure #hiker #getoutside #osmaps #hikes #ordinancesurvey #ukhikers #ukhiker #skye #isleofskye #visitscotland #sgurralasdair #hiking #mountaineering #mountain #summit #selfie #summitselfie #throwback #tbt #hikeuk #thenorthface #silva #buff

Finally we have some dry weather, so it's out the door, and into the hills! Coire lagan (corrie of the hollows) sits just under Sgurr Alastair, and Sgurr Thearlaich (Charles peak) and you get to them by scrambling up the great stone chute in between them. Definitely not for me... happy to admire them from here,drinking tea beside this wee Loch which is even more turquoise in the summertime... But beware, every time you venture into the cuillins, you'll be planning for the next time before you reach your car! #thecuillins

Throw back to one of the best achievements of my life. #sgurralasdair was the mountain I was named after and in 2012 I climbed the beast. The great stone chute was one of the gruelling challenges I’ve done, but to of done it and lived to tell the tale (just 😜) it will stay with me forever. Isle of Skye will always be a sanctuary for me #hikinglife #mountains #cullins #isleofskye #homeawayfromhome #lifeisaboutmakingmemories #gooutdoors #hiddenscotland #lonerwolf

• S T I L L my Favourite 🔼 • • • At the moment I am trying to do the shortest timed munros and as relatively as near to me as possible. It's winter and unless you are there by sunrise every minute counts getting up and down that mountain as safely as possible, before darkness falls. A throwback to late summer in Skye on Sgurr Alasdair. Regarded as one of the harder munros. This was great fun. The scree chute part of it took around 1hr 30 mins to crawl up and half of that to what feels like surfing down. Overall it was 7 hours. Looking forward to 7 and more hours of light!

Start the year with a positive attitude. Displace the balance of comfort and discomfort in 2019. Be sweatier, hungrier and far more determined than the years before. - - - #isleofskye #cuillin #cuillinridge #sgurralasdair #mountain #camping #wildcamping #climbing #outdoors #arcteryx #gopro #scotland #visitscotland #mountain
