Guided Scrambling & Climbing on The Cuillin Ridge. May 26th - 30th 2014. Special offer.

For any one interested in attempting climbing, scrambling or even a complete traverse of The Cuillin Ridge on The Isle of Skye, the following offer is available. This is a one off and will take place only between Monday May 26th and Friday May 30th 2014 when one of our associate instructors Neil Mackay will be in the area.

Neil is available to provide any of the above during these five days at a rate of only £130 per day for two persons. Neil can be contacted on 07977 632137 or by email at

Neil is currently undergoing training to become a IFMGA Mountain Guide and has considerable experience of mountaineering in the European Alps and guiding in Nepal. He has also completed a winter traverse of The Cuillin Ridge and knows the area well.

As well as undertaking a Cuillin Ridge Traverse which can be done in as little as two days with an overnight bivouac there are some 11 Munro summits that can be attained. The trickiest of these is the Inaccessible Pinnacle on Sgurr Dearg which can only be reached by an exposed and polished Diff standard rock climb and escaped from by means of an abseil. Weather permitting it should be possible to ascend the "In Pinn" and other nearby Munroes such as Sgurr Na Banachdich and Sgurr Mhic Choinnich in one day if you are looking for individual days of guiding on The Cuillin Ridge.
As well as guided Munro Bagging and scrambling courses, Neil will also be available to guide people on some of the Cuillin Ridge's Classic Rock Climbs.

You may have an ambition to climb to the top of the Famous Cioch Buttress on Sron Na Ciche in Coire Lagan via routes such as Cioch Direct (Severe 4a) or via The Terrace and one of the routes on the Cioch Slab such as Arrow Route (V Diff). Why not continue with an ascent of  Wallworks Route (V Diff) or Integrity ( Mild VS) on the Cioch Upper Buttress to arrive on the summit of Sron Na Ciche?
Neil will be on hand to arrange the climbing adventure of your choice.

So for only £130 per day you can be guided along the Cuillin Ridge or up many of the scrambling routes leading on to the crest of the ridge.

You can also choose to go rock climbing for the day - contact Neil to discuss your aspirations, what equipment you will need; and what Neil will provide you with as part of your fee.

Neil may also be prepared to offer climbing outwith The Cuillin Ridge at venues such as Neist Point and as a separate but classic scrambling traverse you may want to consider the Clach Glas Traverse to Blaven.

Neil holds public Liability Insurance to the value of £10,000,000 and, as indicated, is willing to provide you with days out of your choice for only £130 per day. As already stated, this offer runs from Monday 26th May to Friday 30th May. Please contact Neil directly to make your booking.
