The Black Cuillin of Skye are without any doubt, the most dramatic mountains in Scotland. With an Alpine atmosphere, the mountains are almost entirely rocky with narrow crests and steep sides. Combined with unreliable weather, intense navigation and route choice, the Cuillins of Skye are the most challenging mountain range in the UK.
There are 11 Munro’s (mountains over 3,000ft), with one being magnificently isolated. They nearly all require some scrambling to reach their summits. The famous Inaccessible Pinnacle requires some rock climbing skills.
During this coming summer season, Di Gilbert Mountaineering will be offering courses on the Isle of Skye.
These courses are aimed specifically at individuals who wish to gain a better insight into a very complex mountain range.
We spend 5 days walking, scrambling and climbing in and around the Black Cuillin.
See below for seperate information on the Skye Traverse.
