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. 

 

Skye represents a big barrier for many people trying to complete the Munros. Only 3 of the peaks can be ascended by walking (Brauch Na Frithe, Banachdich and Bla Bheinn) and the rest all require some degree of scrambling or even climbing ability. 

The finest mountaineering achievement in Britain is a traverse of the Cuillin ridge. This is arranged in a 3 day minimum booking, but the longer the booking the more preparation we can do and the greater the chance of a clear weather window. The ridge is attempted on the best two weather days. 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, this should not be your first route in the Cuillin. Ideally you will have joined us for a few days out previously to get your ability up to the level required.

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.
