After delicious breakfast, we’ve started our walk up to the Trotternish Ridge.

On the halfway to the Storr, we’ve faced with a snowstorm. The level of snow almost reached our knees, and visibility came nearer to a zero, making our walking extremely dangerous.

We gave up and took a decision to go down to the valley and catch a school bus to the Storr.

There are not so many places at Storr, where you can set the campsite. Tired and frozen we hardly found a dry plot of land for a tent.
