The Black Cuillin on Skye are some of the most rugged and impressive mountains in the British Isles. The In Pin is the crux for those wishing to complete the Munros and a traverse of the full ridge is one of the most highly regarded prizes in British mountaineering. All but a few of the tops require a degree of scrambling as well as good route finding and map work skills. These are Scotlands answer to the Alps and they should be treated as such.
A traverse of the Cuillin Ridge is arranged in a 3 day minimum booking. The ridge is attempted on the best two weather days and the remaining days are spent preparing and enjoying the other delights of Skye. However booking more days greatly increases your chances of a suitable weather window and therefore a successful traverse. A traverse can be done with no more than 2 clients at a time. This is because of the large amount of complex terrain that needs to be covered at a fast pace. A traverse is aimed at experienced mountaineers.
We also offer a discounted 5 day course that aims to tick off all 12 of the Skye Munros. This is in a maximum instructor to client ratio of 1:3.
There are many great hostels and B&B's to stay at on Skye, if you are having difficulties planning your trip feel free to ask for recommendations.
