“It has been my good fortune to lie on the summit of the Matterhorn and look away across the sea of peaks to Mont Blanc, sixty miles distant; to sit at the old gite on the Weisshorn, and see the night chase the evening mists up the sides of the Dom and Taschorn, and to watch the sun rise and flush red over the grand dome of Mont Blanc; but I recall none of these things, beautiful and memorable as they were, so vividly to mind as that perfect night up in lonely Corrie Lagan” Ashley Abraham 1908

If you would like to take in some of the classic scrambles and summits on Skye, then this Scrambling on Skye course is the one for you. For me this is the place where as a young and impressionable teenager I did my first rock climb, the Inaccessible Pinnacle, in the company of a local guide. I have been back every year since and am always keen to pass on the enthusiasm for the Cuillin that stems from that day.

You need to have previous experience on grade 3 ground before going us on Skye, our advanced scrambling course is ideal preparation.
