We spent two days on the Isle of Skye and our boots saw action. The scenery was spectacular; cliffs, mountains, fiords, and wide open sea. One hike was straight up into the Cullins range. It took us four hours and the last half mile was scrambling (hiking using feet and hands on steep grades). The view from the top was amazing (photos upon return) and all of us were exhausted.
The following photo is Johnny at around 1500 feet (vertical) into the hike. We would end up in the middle of black hills behind him. Right after we got off the high ground, the area was engulfed by clouds, rain, and wind.
