4-Day Traverse of Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye

4-Day Traverse of Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye | undefined

Join Scott, a certified mountaineering instructor, on a memorable 4-day journey traversing the rocky Cuillin Ridge and experiencing the excitement of these remarkable Scottish mountains.


4 Days

May - Sep




Let me help you traverse one of the most compelling climbs in Scotland! I can improve your chances of completing the elusive Cuillin Ridge and checking it off your climbing bucket list!

The Cuillin Ridge is a well-known mountain range located on the Island of Skye in the United Kingdom. Possessing some magnificent peaks, with a high point at Sgurr Alasdair of 992 meters, its rocky terrain is a perfect place to enjoy a day – or a few days – of scrambling and climbing.

The path is difficult and varied, and you will have ample opportunity to practice your skills, admire the countryside, and endure the challenge of completing the task at hand. I will safely guide you through the ridge and make sure you take advantage of this rare experience!

On our way, we will stay in an overnight bivy. Not only will this give you once-in-a-lifetime moments on the ridge, enhancing your overall experience, but you will see Scottish panoramas that only a handful of adventurers have seen.

Not all journeys end in success. If we are unable to complete the ridge, we will spend all of the days out on the Cuillin enjoying the activities of scrambling and hiking. If we traverse earlier than the four days, we will have time for rest.

Your fitness is crucial to your success. The better equipped you are mentally and physically, the greater your shot of traversing the ridge. It is a relatively demanding course, so be ready to devote yourself to the trek.

So what are you waiting for? I will improve your opportunity to complete one of Scotland´s highest honors – successfully traversing the Cuillin Ridge!

If you want to try this traverse over three days, I can lead you! And I can guide you on a hike up the majestic 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.
