    Reaching the In Pinn, which involves rock climbing for the ascent and an abseil back down, meant walking and scrambling over rocky terrain for more than two hours. Mark said: “On the Inaccessible Pinnacle there was a handful of fellow climbers. The love and all the congratulations that came with this is beautiful and we thank everyone for their best wishes. The wedding dress and suit held up well until we had an impromptu swim in the loch sat in Coire Lagan on the walk out.”

    He added: “The climb would never have happened if we weren’t perfectly happy we could do it safely in the conditions that were given and our use of the necessary safety equipment carried. We would climb the In Pinn again but will never repeat it dressed up.”
