Sgurr Alasdair

Skye’s highest mountain – and centrepiece of the Black Cuillin, Britain’s most committing mountaineering traverse – is a spire of volcanic rock that looks impenetrable from every angle. While certainly no afternoon stroll, the way up isn’t as daunting as it first appears, via a sneaky mid-grade scramble that lands you on top of this most exceptional of Scottish islands.

Best route: the scrambler’s way up is via the Great Stone Shoot between Sgurr Alasdair and Sgurr Thearlaich. It’s a scramble-heavy walk, and starts at Glenbrittle House (NG411214)
