STAC POLLAIDH SCRAMBLING
Day 2 with Patrick and Co on their long weekend in the Ullapool area. Today they fancied an easier day after our big day yesterday on An Teallach. Overnight dusting of snow to 700m and an even colder day. So the finest 'small' mountain in the UK, Stac Pollaidh, fitted the bill nicely. A wonderful hill day with scrambling along the ridge. For most of the guys this was their first taste of scrambling. The beauty of this hill is you can opt out of some of the harder sections of scrambling with a traverse path along the ridge. A cold, light northerly wind meant it was hand on rock with gloves for much of the day. Great fun as always on this iconic hill which feels and looks much bigger than the modest 612 metre high summit. Another top day.
