Cuillin Ridge

Having got a taste for scrambling around Snowdonia, in September 2016 a work colleague and I decided to travel to Scotland’s Isle of Skye and tackle the infamous Black Cuillin Ridge.

With 11 Munros, over 30 summits, and technical rock climbing up to Very Difficult, we found ourselves a little unprepared, and so with only three days to explore (one rained off), decided against a full traverse. Instead we scrambled up to the two highest peaks, Sgurr Alasdair and Sgùrr Dearg, where we got a good look at the In Pinn and managed part of the ridge whilst the weather looked good.

On the fourth and final day on the Island we managed to explore the mystical landscape of the Quiraing, which really stood out as a highlight of the trip.
