What should I know about Hiking Scotland?
You’ll find a number of hiking/scrambling trails within the Munros (the mountains of Skye). The Cuillen Ridge Traverse is a classic hike and involves some scrambling. An Ascent of the In Pinn is also an awesome choice if you’re looking to move from hiking into mountaineering and would like an adrenaline rush (it’s a pretty exposed route)! Besides the Munros Skye offers beautiful trails at every turn, so if you’re looking for a less steep hike, you’ll find that too.
