The Skye Cuillin Traverse

The Skye Cuillin Traverse

From £750
Altitude 992m Grade: Intermediate
4 mountain days Guide Ratio: 1:2

The Skye Cuillin Traverse is the ultimate scramble and Britain’s finest mountaineering expedition.

The complete traverse of the Cuillin Ridge in a two day journey with a bivouac in between. The journey will be attempted after an initial day's training and preparation. If the weather is poor we will aim to do the best of the ridge on separate days. You should be a confident scrambler and have a high level of fitness.

Many of Skye’s summits involve scrambling. Scrambling describes that grey area between walking and climbing and offers an exciting and more challenging way to the summit. It tends to cover broken rocky ground requiring simple rock climbing skills and a good head for heights.

Please do NOT book your own accommodation and travel arrangements until you have verified that the course is definitely running.

Alternatively the Skye Summits Course offers the opportunity to climb a large number of Skye's Munros with a more flexible itinerary.

Our guide was most helpful. Thank you to Giles for his professionalism and friendliness. Also Giles gave us sound advice on how to spend our following three days en route to Glasgow airport

Getting into the hills in Skye is always a pleasure. Discovering that I had increased confidence on the rock was a pleasant surprise.
