We recommend that all customers are honest when asked to discuss their skill levels and experience in the mountains.  This allows us to evaluate and select other routes that maybe on offer if the chosen objective is not.  Remember in the mountains everything is weather dependent.

Just some of the choices available

The Inaccessible Pinnacle

"The pinnacle, rising precipitously for over a hundred feet on the south side, falls in one vertical drop of 300 to 400 feet on the north.  As the mountain on which it stands also shoots steeply away on either side, the eye plunges away to Loch Coruisk, 2,500 ft below.  Great care is needed as it only 6 inches to a foot wide in many places" ...Charles Pilkington, 1888.

Just a fantastic mountaineering day out, it has everything; walking, scrambling, climbing, abseiling and a great summit to finish on, then walk off back down to the world famous Sligachan Hotel for that well earned drink.

Route finding can be a major obstacle within the Cuillin Mountains, so why not keep it safe and enjoy your days on the hills and employ a Skye Mountain Guide.

I bring my enthusiasm for all things mountainous to my work as a guide and mountain instructor and have been introducing novices to the mountains and helping experts to improve.  I have spent several years as a senior instructor in outdoor education and pursuits where much of my work was training future mountain leaders and climbers.

Home is Skye where I can offer a personal service which can be tailored to the individual or groups.  Feel free to propose your own ideas or adventures or dates and we will try our best to meet your needs.
