You’ll be glad to know that you don’t have to be a top notch rock climber to negotiate even the most technical sections of the ridge, or any of its dozen or so main summits. With expert guiding & instruction you can access some alpine style terrain while learning about all the safety considerations en-route.
Of course good fitness and a head for heights are important as we’ll try to explore as much as we can of the main ridge over five days. On the way you’ll learn a lot about looking after yourself with rope & rock protection. So if you’ve thought about the Inaccessible Pinnacle or the mighty Sgurr Nan Gillean then join us on this memorable week. We've been guiding on the Cuillin for 30 years and have a local knowledge second to none - essential on such a complex mountain area.
You can opt to join this week and stay at any of the places detailed below where we will pick up and drop off each day. Alternatively join us at the Sligachean campsite on the fully catered option at our basecamp.
