Course Information

The Black Cuillin on Skye holds some of the best mountaineering and scrambling in the UK.  The Cuillin is made up of spectacular ridges and dramatic jagged summits, it is the home of many classic scrambles and climbs that we’ll aim to explore on the days out.

The idea of this course is to give you 2 guided days of classic mountaineering routes giving you a taste of what the Cuillin has to offer.  We run this course at a 1:2 guide client ratio, this allows up to explore the more technical scrambles and perhaps graded climbs that are possible on the Cuillin.

Some examples of routes we might include would be Pinnacle Ridge on Gillean, the Dubh Ridge, the Coire Lagan circuit or an ascent of the Cioch.

The valley base for this course will be Glen Brittle, it is priced on a non-residential basis.

Note – We run this course at a 1:2 instructor client ratio max.  We can supply additional instructors for larger groups wanting this course.

Note – We can still run this course/trip even if it is not full, however there might be an additional charge to bring the price up to a minimum daily rate/trip price for the relevant course or trip.  Should a course not be viable due to lack of numbers we can discuss other options with you.  As everyone has different levels of flexibility with dates and cut-off times for cancellation it’s best if you let us know your situation when booking.  In situations where you have offered last minute flexibility but Mountain Circles can not fill a course and has to cancel, we will refund the course fee and deposit in full, if you cancel from a course that is full and running then normal conditions apply, see Cancellations in How to book.

Mark Rock Climbing Course

‘Having spend three days in the mountains with Paddy I’ve got to say he’s the best guide I’ve ever worked with. Everything was pitched perfectly for my individual level - the choice of climbs, the balance between learning and mileage on the crag, all suited my level of experience. In three days I went from never having climbed trad to leading VD, seconding HVS+ and ticking off a classic mountain route, all thanks to Paddy’s professionalism and enthusiasm. Can’t wait to get out there again!’
