Isle of Skye

The ClimbNow team have been guiding on Skye in both the summer and winter for over 20 years giving them an excellent knowledge of the Black and Red Cuillin. As well as climbing established routes, members of the climbnow team have also been involved in new routing on the island.

We believe in keeping our ratios low on our Skye courses. This ensures a high level of safety and also allows us the greatest chance of success given poor weather. Helmets and harnesses are provided by the team as is all technical climbing equipment. All you need for your adventure is your personal hill walking equipment.

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.

Over 5 days we will aim to complete all the Munro’s in the Black Cuillin. Although the 11 Munro’s on Skye are attainable in 4 long days, the fifth day allows us flexibility given poor weather. As the ratio is lower than the previous course it will allow us the opportunity to venture onto more difficult terrain and link a number of the Munro’s together via entertaining scrambling.

the cuillin traverse

The finest mountaineering expedition in the United Kingdom. A truly memorable experience on an alpine scale. The climbnow team recommend completing the route with one bivouac. Overnighting on the Cuillin ridge adds an extra dimension to the adventure and for many who undertake the route it is the most special part.

private guiding on skye

The Isle of Skye provides a lifetime’s worth of adventures for all abilities of walker, climber and mountaineer. Private guiding allows a personalised program to be produced that can include specific routes you wish to achieve. For example, Pinnacle Ridge on Sgurr nan Gillean (964m), the Clach Glas-Bla Bheinn (928m) traverse or The Dubhs Ridge on Sgurr Dubh Mor (944m).
