Skye Cuillin Ridge Guide for Ridge Traverses and the Skye Cuillin Munros.

Skye Cuillin Ridge traverse Guide and Skye Cuillin Munro courses.

The Skye Cuillin Ridge is a mountaineers playground, with so much rock and so much choice you could spend days scrambling or climbing around in the many coires of the Skye Black Cuillin. Of course, there is the British classic of the full Skye Cuillin Ridge traverse too, Britain's longest mountaineering route and a must-do for any mountaineer or climber.


We take bookings for Skye Cuillin Ridge traverse courses or join us to tackle the 11 Munros on the main ridge on a Skye Cuillin Munro course. The 11 Munros of Sgurr nan Eag, Sgurr Dubh Mor, Sgurr Alasdair, Sgurr MhicCoinnich, The Inaccessible Pinnacle, Sgurr Na Banachdaich, Sgurr a Ghreadaidh, Sgurr a Mhadaidh, Bruach na Frithe, Am Bastier and Sgurr nan Gillean offer some of the greatest challenges for people looking to complete the Munros. The Inaccessible Pinnacle is undoubtfully one of the Cuillin's most famous summits but all of the Skye Munros have their own place in the hearts of Scotland's mountain lovers.


When the weather is not playing fair in the mountains there is also Skye's many sea cliffs, with loads of varieties of rock and styles of climbing to choose from. All of our guides know the ridge like the back of their hand and have spent years working in the area. This knowledge helps us to find the right day to fit the notorious Skye Cuillin weather and balance your expectations and experiences.

Cuillin Ridge traverse

A guided traverse of the Cuillin Ridge really is a serious undertaking which requires a high level of fitness and confidence on the exposed and serious ground but the rewards and feeling you get on your walk out to the Sligachen hotel are enormous and worth the effort. You would have completed one of Britain's greatest mountaineering challenges.



Skye Cuillin Munros

All of Skye's Munros on the Cuillin are a bit more than a walk and a lot of people like to hire a guide to help with route finding and to keep them safe, over the more serious ground.


If your ambitions are to 'tick off' the Cuillin Munros and want that feeling of reassurance that comes with hiring a qualified mountain guide we can help.



In Pinn Guiding

The In Pinn (Inaccessible Pinnacle) is undoubtedly one of the most famous Munros on Skye, if not in Scotland. Anyone wishing to climb the Munros or complete a Cuillin ridge traverse will have to climb this large fin of rock.

We offer Inaccessible Pinnacle guiding along with all of the other Munros on the ridge.
