Isle of Skye Trip – Winter Climbing or Winter Walking Skye.
In winter. In the Cuillin. Say it! Sounds exciting doesn’t it? We thought so and we’ve come up with this trip so you can experience the sublime, ephemeral life enhancing event which is climbing or walking on the most amazing mountains in the whole of the British Isles. We’ll be based at the Skye Basecamp Hostel in Broadford.
This base gives us the option of getting to all the Greater Cuillin areas or, if we have to, getting back to the mainland if conditions are best over there.
Winter Walkers: cost: £180.00 If the Cuillin are in winter condition Bla Bheinn, Bruach na Frithe and Sgurr na Banachdich are our preferred choices of hills to do over the three walking days. If conditions are more wintery over on the mainland we might do at least one day over there instead, probably in either Applecross or Glen Shiel. Previous experience – Previous winter walking experience is essential
Winter Climbers cost: £240.00 There are so many amazing winter climbing routes to be done in the Cuillin or, if conditions are better for getting on the ridge, there is no finer place to be in Scotland. We’ll probably do a day on the Glen Brittle side of the range and another in the Bla Bheinn area. On the third day we have options depending on conditions. Previous experience – Scottish winter climbing experience at grade III or above and a good level of fitness is essential.
