Introduction to the Cuillin of Skye

For those with hill walking experience but little experience of scrambling, this course will give you a flavour of what the island is all about without taking on the more challenging sections of the ridge. The aim will be to complete six Munro’s in four days and visit both the Red and Black Cuillin.

Ratio: 1:4 maximum

What’s included: Instruction, helmets, harnesses and all technical equipment.

Sample Program

Day 1: From the Youth Hostel in Glen Brittle we will make the ascent of Sgurr na Banachdaich (965m).

Day 2: We will climb Bruach na Frithe (958m) from the Fairy Pools. This route gives a little more scrambling than yesterday and will provide a good warm up for the next day.

Day 3: Today we will aim to complete the highest mountain in the Cuillin, Sgurr Alasdair (992m), as well as summiting Sgurr nan Eag (924m) and Sgurr Dubh Mor (944m).

Day 4: Our final day will be spent in the Red Cuillin where we will complete Bla Bheinn (928m) which will provide a great view of the mountains completed during the previous three days activities.
