LFTO Review

The third unmissable high point on the Black Cuillin – testimony to the variety of mountain experiences to be had on Skye’s backbone ridge, Sgurr nan Gillean is a difficult peak, with sharp, pinnacled ridges building to the most elegant summit in Scotland. Nearby, the blade of the Am Basteir tooth is another distinctive Skye landmark – perhaps the most instantly recognisable – you can link to this route if you have your mountaineering head on.

Best route: there is an easier scrambly way up this mountain, but mountaineers should link Am Basteir and Sgurr nan Gillean in a pinnacled horseshoe from the Allt Dearg Mòr.
