Sgurr na Stri (497m)

It looks increasingly like the weather will be bad for the remainder of the week so with an ok forecast today we decided to make an ascent of Sgurr na Stri from Sligachan. It was a long walk (19kms) but well worth it for the fantastic views. Even though the mountain is quite low in altitude it's scale is awesome with great views over to Soay, Rum, Eigg and Canna as well as an almost unbroken view of the Black Cuillin (well, if the weather would allow!!). A great day with a brisk wind and only a couple of showers.

Top: Andy and Gwen just before the summit with the Dubhs ridge in the background.
Bottom: Loch na Cuilce and the Scavaig River from the summit.
