Highlights

 
     
    The Cuillin is a rocky mountain range on the isle of Skye, Scotland.

    I have been guiding hiking and climbing tours around the Black and Red Cuillin during the last years. Why not going together and enjoy mountaineering in these spectacular and challenging region of Britain?

    These mountains have to offer some of the best terrain in Britain, adventurous and exciting, and all hiking enthusiasts should visit them, even if just once.

    We can leave there together for a minimum of 3 days. It’s suitable for everyone who enjoys hiking and scrambling on hills. Of course, I can change where we go during the course to adjust to the level of the participants.

    For example, we can climb Pinnacle Ridge to the top of Sgurr Nan Gillean. For a less demanding day we can ascend the East Ridge.

    The 1:3 ratio gives us more opportunities to explore interesting terrains. It also improves our chance of succeeding in bad weather.

    I propose to you the following program as a guide:

    Day 1. Sgurr Nan Gillean, Am Basteir, Bruach Na Frithe.
    Day 2. Sgurr a’Ghreadaidh, Sgurr a’Mhadaidh.
    Day 3. The In-Pinn, Sgurr Mhic Connich.
    Day 4. Sgurr Na Bhannadich.
    Day 5. Sgurr Nan Eag, Sgurr Dubh Mor, Sgurr Alasdair.
    Day 6. Blaven.

    Are you interested in experiencing the Scottish mountains and leave for several days of great adventures? Then please get in touch with me! I also offer rock climbing and scrambling programs in Scotland. Check them out!

    Some of the best days I have had in the winter hills have been those guided by Euan. The climbing is always challenging, for me, but his calm reassurance and expertise always results in an enjoyable and memorable day.I am already looking forward to doing more routes with him next winter!

    I was fortunate enough to have Euan as my Guide for my first alpine adventure. Euan’s patience, knowledge and humour made our trip challenging, rewarding, educational and above all fun. I would not hesitate to book him for future outgoings and recommend him highly to anyone who is looking for a guide in the mountains or on the crag.
