The Cuillin ridge is an epic undertaking; 12km of almost continuous scrambling, eleven Munros, technical rock climbs and a few abseils. Are you up to one of the greatest outdoor challenges in the UK?
An alpine-length ridge rising straight from the sea gives the Cuillin its unique feel. The world class scrambling and rock climbing and the chance to tick eleven Munros as you traverse the ridge makes this route the jewel in the crown of British scrambling, requiring not just physical fitness and technical skills but also mental stamina.
Fewer than 10% of those who start manage to finish it on their first attempt yet, with practice, it is well within the grasp of many scramblers and climbers.
