Event description
This 4 day course is aimed at those who wish to complete all of the Cuillin Munros, whether a Munro bagger or just an avid hill walker.

About this Event

The Munros of the Skye Cuillin are some of the most prized and challenging summits in Britain with some of the most spectacular mountain scenery anywhere in the UK. Though the peaks on the Cuillin Ridge may not have the stature of some Munros they are a formidable challenge and include in their midst the infamous Inaccessible Pinnacle. Starting at or very close to sea level, covering technical ground and graded climbs, and travelling through a labyrinth of paths and false paths only adds to the challenge they pose. That's why we're here to help guide you through these incredible mountains and hopefully make the experience a safe and enjoyable one.

With the aim of completing all the Cuillin Ridge Munros we find the following itinerary provides us with the greatest chance of success. Although we will most probably complete each day as stated, we like to be flexible with the order of the days in order to make the best of the weather and conditions and have a more relaxing day when it's needed.

Fitness

The Cuillin Munros are achievable for the fit hill-walker. To aid success it is advised that you have good ‘hill-fitness’, have some experience of exposed terrain and have some general upper body strength to cope with the technical ground and long days. For those who are not regular hill-walkers, a good level of cardio fitness and general upper body strength are necessary.

Days are normally 7-10 hours long, with roughly 1000m of ascent and 15km covered daily. You do not have to have experience of roped climbing.

Timing and Meeting

You will meet your instructor on the morning of your start date. Your instructor will be in contact the week before your start date to discuss final arrangements and the prevailing weather conditions.
