This is the ultimate guide to Skye's mountains, offering comprehensive coverage of all the island's peaks.Skye is a paradise for mountain climbers and hillwalkers. This guidebook selects more than 100 varied mountain routes from all over the island, ranging from some of the most challenging in Britain, to pleasant ascents of grassy summits.
The jewel in the island's crown is The Cuillin and a summer traverse of the Cuillin Ridge, the 30 or so peaks and tops that form the Cuillin crest, is a major challenge to any mountain climber. This guidebook utilises 50 annotated topo-diagrams to describe the Cuillin Ridge in greater detail than ever before, with sections on Planning, Tactics and Equipment.
However, the Cuillin Ridge is just one of more than 100 routes described in this guide. Most mountain climbers and hillwalkers visiting Skye are climbing one of the 12 Munros, 9 Munro Tops, 2 Corbetts, 9 Grahams and 35 sub-2000ft Marilyns on the island. This guidebook describes routes on all of these peaks and many other classics such as the Clach Glas Traverse, Pinnacle Ridge on Sgurr nan Gillean, the Dubhs Ridge on Sgurr Dubh Beag and Dun Cana on the Isle of Raasay.
