Beinn Alligin means a Mountain of Beauty in Gaelic language and I must agree with that. It consists of two tops - Munros (the mountains of more than 3000 feet in height).

Usually the best time to visit Scotland is from mid April till the end of May but you can be lucky and experience good weather all year round. April is great with the patches of snow, brown grass and blue sky contrast whereas in August you can experience nice green/pink colors. Can be crowded during weekends with good weather but it is still memorable experience.

Coire Lagan is a fine place on the Isle of Skye. It is situated in southern part of the famous Cuillin ridge.

This is probably a year round hike but only as long as the weather is decent. The best time with least rainfall is from mid April till the end of May. Can be a bit crowded during summertime. I would recommend to go in the afternoon to experience fine sunset on the way back (of course when the sun is out:-))

Rubh' an Dunain is a peninsula on the Isle of Skye near the Glenbrittle village. It is easily accessible via good track. The peninsula itself can be very boggy (good walking boots are essential).

Since the place is easily accessible and the walk is a low level walk it can be done all year round. Sunsets are beautiful in this place. The best weather with the lowest rainfall is usually between April and June.

PLEASE NOTE that climbing this mountain can be very dangerous. It is not a walk and demands scrambling.

Isle of Skye, also known as "Misty Isle", has only few really good days for climbing the higher mountains. The best time is usually from mid April to the end of May, but you can be lucky and experience a great day throughout the whole year. From my experience, it is better to start after noon, since evenings are usually more calm on Skye. Check the forecast before you go! Note that climbing Sgurr Alasdair requires mountain experience. People who suffer from vertigo should not try this. Note that Cuillin ridge can be very dangerous place for people who underestimate it. Weather can change very quickly and navigation is very hard on the ridge. Use proper clothes, shoes and equipment when going to the ridge and be ready for every eventuality.

Quinag is a massif of three Corbetts. It lies in the northern Assynt near Kylesku bridge. The best way up the mountains is from the car park on the main road A894.

It is better to start in the morning or before noon, since the walk can take more than six hours (depends on how fit you are). Always check forecast before you go!

Some say, the best time to visit Scotland is from mid April to the end of May, but you can experience good weather all year round.
