Date: 2nd May 2020
Saturday 2nd, Sunday 3rd and Monday 4th May 2020 will be a three day ascent of Munros on the Cuillin ridge, Skye.
These will be level 4 walks with grade 1 and grade 2 scrambling involved, with exposure, in some of the most beautiful Island scenery on the Island of Skye in the West Highlands. You will need to have a good level of fitness for these walks as well as a head for heights and exposure.
With several guides on hand and small group sizes, we will tackle some of the iconic peaks of the Cuillin and depending on the weather and the group experience, will look at Sgurr nan Gillean, Am Basteir, Sgurr Mhic Choinnich, Sgurr nan Eag and Sgurr Dubh Mor as well as other peaks of the Black Cuillin.
We will also include an option for clients to ascend the Inaccessible Pinnacle, affectionately known as the 'Inn Pinn', the only Munro that needs to be climbed. Again, depending on the weather, clients will be able to tackle this infamous peak with a climbing instructor for a small additional fee, paid on the day. The Instructor will provide helmets and harnesses for the short climb.
Choice of accommodation is yours. www.sligachan.co.uk offer a Hotel, a bunkhouse, self catering lodges and a campsite. There is a large restaurant with a bar on site. Previous clients have enjoyed B&B at www.fineviews.co.uk
We will meet at 0830 in the car park outside the Sligachan Hotel on each morning to begin the walk unless otherwise agreed. If the weather means group safety on the Cuillin will be compromised, alternative walks will be arranged on Skye.
Ideally we would organise car share in advance to minimise our environmental impact. Sligachan is on the main City Link bus route from both Edinburgh and Glasgow and is a direct service.
Cost is only £150 per person. It's highly recommended that you check your chosen accommodation on the Island first and please book early to avoid disappointment, this event is by far our most popular weekend trip.
