Guided day on Blaven in Skye

Blaven is reckoned to be one of the most beautiful mountains in Scotland. It is uniquely and distinctively shaped and the views from both the main summit and the 'south top' are fabulous in all directions.

We'll head up from Loch Slapin, taking a relaxed pace to the summit, passing some lovely waterfalls and with plenty of time to take in the developing panorama.
