Join Euan, a local IFMGA mountain guide, during 5 days of non-stop climbing of the Cuillin Munros, in the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
The Cuillin, a mountain range located on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, is the perfect spot for your next climbing experience.
Some of these black and steep peaks are called Munros, which are a dream come true for mountaineers because of their igneous rocks and basalt which allow for a strong grip. Designated a National Scenic Area in Scotland, this is also a beautiful place that will astonish you with its serrated ridges that rise up from the sea.
If you are already wondering what is it like to climb one of these (or many) Munros, you will like my program. I want to guide you for 5 days to complete all the 11 Munros on the Black Cuillin.
We will start at Sgurr nan Gillean (964 m). Then, on the following days, we will aim for other Munros of similar height. We will also get to climb the most well-known Munro of Skye, the Inaccessible Pinnacle (986m). Finally, we will wrap up with Sgurr nan Eag (924m) and Sgurr Dubh Mor (944m).
For this trip you will need to have some mountaineering experience. Also, a good fitness level is a must! Of course, I will be happy to help you on the way.
Are you already excited to take on this challenge? Then make it a reality and book this program now!
If you don’t have 5 days to enjoy the area, you can try this 3-day hiking and climbing in the Cuillin instead.
Since the ratio is very low, it will give us the chance to venture onto more difficult terrain and link a number of the Munros together via scrambling.
We will climb Sgurr nan Gillean (964m), Am Bastier (934m) and Bruach na Frithe (958m).
After walking to An Dorus we will complete Sgurr a Mhadaidh (918m) and Sgurr a Ghreadaidh (973m).
We will climb the most famous Munro on Skye, the Inaccessible Pinnacle (986m). Then, we will climb Sgurr na Banachdaich (965m).
Today, our goal will be to climb Sgurr Alasdair (992m) and Sgurr Mhic Choinnich (948m) including the famous Hart’s Ledge.
On our final day, we will climb Sgurr nan Eag (924m) and Sgurr Dubh Mor (944m).

Euan is an excellent leader and seems to have a great gift of knowing the abilities of those he is leading. He definitely creates even more enthusiasm and enjoyment : even when I am going to have a really great day, he makes it even better!
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!
Euan was great and I would recommend him to others.
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.
Spending a day in the hills with Euan is always a pleasure: Summer or Winter he will always ensure that you’re experience of the day will be remembered. His leadership style and skills are excellent and he is always willing to instruct and pass knowledge on no matter what the activity is.
