When Is the Best Time 

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!

Review and Tips 

Bla Bheinn is a magnificent mountain with stunning views. Although it looks very steep, the path up the hill is 99% walk and 1% easy scramble. The easiest way up starts in the parking lot behind the bridge on the minor road B8083 from Broadford to Elgol. Approach to the col under the mountain by a repaired path. In the col, you have to turn right and look for steep zig zags up the hill. They look very steep but are not very difficult to walk. Follow the path and soon, you will get to a place with first views. Go slightly left and up and after an easy scramble you will get yourself on the final part of the way to the top. The very top is 928 meters high and is marked by a trig point. Bla Bheinn is one of the Munros. It is the only Munro standing apart from the famous Cuillin ridge.
