Course Information

There are few places as dramatic as the Isle of Skye, and its Munros are no exception.  The 11 Munros on the main Cuillin Ridge are considered some of the most technical in Scotland, with the awesome Inaccessible Pinnacle being the most famous and feared amongst those trying to complete the Munros of Scotland.

In the 4 days out we will aim to complete all the main ridge Munros weather permitting.  The completion of these Munros gives 4 days of spectacular mountaineering amongst the jagged peaks and wild ridges of the Black Cuillin of Skye, an unforgettable experience.

The Munros include;

1 – Sgùrr nan Gillean

2 – Am Basteir

3 – Bruach na Frìthe

4 – Sgùrr a’ Mhadaidh

5 – Sgùrr a’ Ghreadaidh

6 – Sgùrr na Banachdaich

7 – Sgùrr Dearg (The Inaccessible Pinnacle)

8 – Sgùrr MhicChoinnich

9 – Sgùrr Alasdair

10 – Sgùrr Dubh Mòr

11 – Sgùrr nan Eag

Blà Bheinn (Blaven) is Skyes 12 Munro, it is an outlier of the main ridge and technically easier, people are often happy to complete Blaven under their own guidance but if you would prefer to have a guide for this as well then just let us know and we’ll add an extra day onto the course to complete this.

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

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!’
