Cuillin Ridge Traverse

This course offers the only true Alpine day in Britain. The course comprises two warm up days, then the big push to do the ridge in 12 to 15 hours. The ridge is over 7 miles long and includes 10,000ft of ascent and descent in the day. This is a major under taking, and previous Cuillin experience is recommended.

Cuillin Ridge Traverse Alternatives

With Cuillin Guides you can now attempt the Cuillin Ridge Traverse in two other approaches, other than the traditional route.

The first, the North/South route, which starts at Sgurr nan Gillean and finishes on Gars Bheinn. This route allows you to abseil some of the more difficult sections. This said, it should still be considered a serious undertaking.

The second, option is to do the Ridge in sections over a number of days. This allows you to experience the splendour of the ridge at a relatively comfortable speed. It also gives more scope with the Skye weather. The course can be completed in either 3 or 4 days.

Both these courses cost £275 per person.
Maximum ratio 3-4:1
