Cuillin ridge traverse guide.

Skye Cuillin ridge guides

Ridge traverse courses from 3 - 5 days.

A Skye Cuillin ridge traverse is considered to be one of the greatest routes in the country. It is 12km end to end and every bit of it requires your full concentration, usually done over a two day period with an overnight bivy on the ridge, this is a big challenge. Hiring one of our experienced Skye Cuillin ridge guides can help improve your chances of success but it is never a sure thing.

 

People thinking about a Cuillin ridge traverse should be experienced hillwalkers and scramblers with a high level of fitness, previous experience of Skye is a big bonus. Your Skye Cuillin ridge guide will help you every step of the way but does not guarantee your success, it is up to you to be as fit and capable as you can so as to improve your chances. 

 

Our traverse courses are a minimum of three days with the two best days being used if the weather is right for a traverse. If a traverse is not possible you will have three full days out instead. The weather on Skye like anywhere on the west coast of Scotland is changeable and the more time you can put aside for your traverse the higher chance of a weather window.
