Description

Located off Scotland’s western coast, Cuillin Ridge on the  Isle of Skye offers some of the best scrambling in all of the United Kingdom!

Join me on this 2-day climbing adventure (with one day built in for inclement weather, which happens fairly frequently in western Scotland) and we’ll find out exactly why as we head up as many of the ridge’s 11 iconic munros!

After meeting up at a pre-determined location, we will head out and do some scrambling. Our goal will be to climb as many of the munros as we can.

Ideally in two days, we should be able to climb between four and six. Exactly which ones we head up will be up to what you would like to do along with your skill level.

Ranging from 918 to 992 meters in elevation, none of the munros are too technically difficult to climb, but all of them require a high level of physical fitness.

Some are more simple than others, but all of them provide incredible views. Inaccessible Pinnacle is considered the toughest munro in all of Scotland to climb and if you’re up for it, we will surely try to tick this one off on our trip.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for a challenging yet fun and exciting 2-day scrambling and hiking trip to the sublime Isle of Skye in lovely Scotland!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my Pinnacle Ridge scrambling day in England’s Lake District!
