The Cuillin Ridge


The Cuillin Ridge is one of the most spectacular mountain scenery in Britain. A dragon’s back of peaks that join together in a narrow, steep ridge that stretches 12km across the Isle of Skye.

It’s on the tick list of many British climbers and mountaineers and is normally attempted over 2 days. However, for those with the experience, climbing and navigating ability and the fitness it can be done in a single day.

Andy was lucky enough to get clear blue skies on the day he completed The Ridge (the first time he was ever on it). It became a chapter in his book Extreme Adventures and ‘was a cracking day out’.
