Earn the seldom-achieved bragging rights of traversing the Cuillin Ridge! I will show you the most exciting – and fun! – climb on the Isle of Skye and take you through three days of the most incredible rocky terrain in the United Kingdom!

The Cuillin Ridge is an infamous mountain range in Scotland, and is a perfect location for traversing and climbing adventures. The main ridge runs roughly 12 kilometers in length with rough peaks that make for a complex scrambling network.

There are 11 ¨Munros,¨ or mountains exceeding 914 meters, on Cuillin Ridge, all with accessible peaks to dedicated climbers.

Many trekkers try to reach the top of as many Munros as possible, so this traverse gives you the chance to cross off multiple summits while having the time of your life.

Our adventure allows for three days to make it through Cuillin, with route and trip variations depending on the circumstances of the trek. We will pick the best two days to complete the full traverse, with an overnight bivy on the ridge.

If we should traverse the ridge early, then one of the days will be a day of rest. If the weather is detrimental to our course, we will spend three full days out on the ridge.

This is a relatively difficult journey, with no guarantee that we will complete the route. You should have experience scrambling and be in good physical condition for the best chance of success.

We will err on the side of caution in compromising situations.

Book now and traverse with me through the daunting Cuillin Ridge – I will give you an experience unlike any other in the world!

I can also take you out on a 5-day traverse of the Cuillin Ridge! And I have a great program trekking up Ben Nevis!

Cant recommend our guide Scott Kirkhope enough,very professional and easy going at the same time.We had a great day out on curved ridge&even managed to do crowberry tower with the expert help of Scott.A day not to be forgotten in a long time,outstanding.


Great time walking up Ben Nevis with Kirk's help. It rained the entire time and was unbelievably gusty, but with Kirk's expertise I was able to complete the journey safely!!!



Scott Kirkhope very organised and all went to plan. I’ve passed on his details to a friend!



Mark was wonderful! He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and encouraged us throughout the hike to keep our spirits high! We would not have been able to do this safely and in such an enjoyable manner without him.
