Ascent of the In Pinn on Skye Island

Our guide Will Manners was great. He was very patient with us and made us feel safe throughout. We would highly recommend him to anyone planning to climb the Inn Pin. It was a fabulous experience and some members of the family are already planning the 2-day traverse of the Ridge.
