Description

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.
