Guided scrambling and climbing on Skye's Munros

The Skye Cuillin needs no introduction ! The ridge is technically much harder than anything else in Scotland or elsewhere in the UK. Although the gabbro rock is grippy, some sections are also very loose and others are well polished, therefore slippy in the wet. Route finding can be difficult and having an experienced guide is the finest way to experience the Cuillin for the first time.
