Feel the thrill of completing a daring traverse of an iconic Scottish mountain range! Let me take you on a 5-day journey as we attempt to defeat the indomitable Cuillin Ridge!

The Cuillin is an especially-rocky mountain range in Scotland, and the main ridge is a climber´s paradise full of jagged peaks perfect for scrambling.

The eleven summits of the Munros in the main ridge comprise our track, which is a favorite in the region. Many consider traversing the Cuillin Ridge as one of the most important achievements in the British Isles.

The ridge provides epic climbs and views that will stay with your forever. An overnight bivy on the ridge will also make your time in this range that much more special – nothing beats a morning high in the unique Cuillin mountains.

Completing the traverse is weather permitting – by giving yourself five days to make it through the ridge, you are greatly increasing your shot at being one of the few who find success on the Cuillin.

If we complete the course, you will have the remaining days to rest. If the weather is unfavorable and we are unable to traverse the Cuillin, we will be able to spend all of our time out on the ridge.

I will make sure you have a safe and prepared plan to give you the best opportunity to complete the traverse successfully.

You should be physically fit and mentally prepared for the sustained scrambling and climbing required.

Stop waiting and start scrambling to complete one of Britain´s greatest mountaineering challenges – traversing the notorious Cuillin Ridge!

If you have a limited amount of time, we also can try this traverse over three days. And I´d love to take you on a trek up Ben Nevis – the highest point in the British Isles!
