View of Gars-bheinn, the Cuillin Ridge, Skye

The start of the Cuillin Ridge traverse from the south is Gars-bheinn. However in order to avoid the long slog from Glen Brittle to the foot of Gars-bhein, we had climbed up onto the ridge from Coir' a' Ghrunnda. From there we intended to head south along the ridge to Gars-bheinn before returning to our start point where we would continue along the northern section of the Cuillin Ridge to Sgurr nan Gillean.

The photograph shows the view south along the Cuillin Ridge with Gars-bheinn in the distance. This section was by far the easiest part of the Cuillin Ridge traverse.
