THE CUILLIN & OTHER SKYE MOUNTAINS
The Cuillin Ridge & 100 select routes for mountain climbers & hillwalkers
This is the ultimate guide to Skye’s mountains, offering comprehensive coverage of all the island’s peaks, with more than 100 varied routes, ranging from some of the most challenging in Britain, to pleasant ascents of grassy summits.
The jewel in the island’s crown is The Cuillin and a summer traverse of the Cuillin Ridge, the 30 or so peaks and tops forming the Cuillin crest, is a major challenge for any mountain climber. This guidebook utilises 50 annotated topo-diagrams to describe the Cuillin Ridge in greater detail than ever before, with sections on Planning, Tactics and Equipment.
However, the Cuillin Ridge is just one of the 100 routes. Most mountain climbers and hillwalkers visiting Skye are climbing one of the 12 Munros, 9 Munro Tops, 2 Corbetts, 9 Grahams and 35 sub-2000ft Marilyns on the island.
This guidebook describes routes on all of these peaks, all the Cuillin Corrie Rounds and many other classics such as the Clach Glas Traverse, Pinnacle Ridge on Sgurr nan Gillean, the Dubhs Ridge on Sgurr Dubh Beag, the Trotternish Ridge and Dun Cana on the Isle of Raasay.
