About time we enjoyed some sunshine and views on the Cuillin Ridge on Skye! Cameron, Andrew @themunroman and I bagged the three southern Munros; Sgurr Nan Eag, Sgurr Dubh Mor and Sgurr Alasdair to complete all 11 Munros over the past three days. A great effort by the father and son team, particularly considering the weather on Tuesday and Wednesday.

I have been climbing mountains for four years now and my long scramble up the great stone chute to Sgurr Alasdairs summit was definitely my favourite hike so far.. we had the mountain to ourselves the whole time. The Cuillins are incredible ⛰️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

10yrs ago on Skye’s Cuillin mountains, I watched my cousin get hit by an evil boulder. He survived by the very skin of his teeth after fracturing his skull, getting helicoptered to Glasgow Hospital but eventually making a full recovery. I finally returned last weekend, plucking up the courage to finish the Cuillins. To say I was a nervous here would be an understatement.... One of the most stunning and scary things I’ve ever done!👌🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🗻🧗🏼‍♂️ #faceyourfears #cuillins #skye #highlands #sgurralasdair #exploremore #adventureawaits #scrambling

Looking forward to getting this print from our fabulous friend and adventurer @alineinthesky_ on one of our holiday cottage walls. Love the minimalist clean skylines of some of Scotland's most iconic munros. The more we think about it, the more we're tempted to keep it in our bedroom...and to get a few more munros under our belts! ______________________________________________ #alineinthesky #scotland #visitscotland #scottishart #munrobagging #munros #lovescotland #explorescotland #mountainart #bennevis #benmacdui #cairntoul #lochnagar #bideamnambian #schiehallion #anteallach #liathach #thebuachaille #sgurralasdair #aonacheagach #sgurrnangillean #ukhikers #peakbagging #adventure #hillwalking #hillclimbing #exploreuk

How quickly the clouds come in on the Cuillin Mountains. Trying to climb the highest peak in Skye. Turned back halfway by heavy rain before we could attempt the Great Stone Chute in the third photo. Sun was back on the descent though ☀️ #cuillins #sgurralasdair #skye #mountains

The Cuillin Hills are arguably the most dramatic UK mountain range. They’re a long chain of craggy topped peaks, all requiring at least a scramble to reach, and the full traverse is still a serious mountaineering achievement. The highest point is Sgùrr Alasdair, at 992m asl. reached by a calf-burning 400m slog up the steep scree of the Great Stone Chute followed by an airy scramble to the summit. Coming back down the scree is considerably faster and more fun! #climbingintheclouds #highestblokeonskye #sgurralasdair #visitskye #timeoutside - - - - - #vanlife #madetoroam #sprintervan #bigbluebus #selfbuild #vanconversion #vanlifediaries #sprintervanconversion #campervan #simplelife #mypursuit #travel #explore #everydayadventure #adventure #adventuremobile #roadtrip #offgrid #goodvibes #simplelife #exploremore #campvibes #uktravel

Sgurr Alasdair, the highest island summit in the Uk. Definitely my favourite munro so far. The great stone chute is the most fun you can have decending a munro on foot. #isleofskye #cuillins #cuillinmountains #sgurralasdair #skyemunros #glenbrittle

How about this for an amazing small spaces caravan transformation. The outside colour is exterior eggshell in Sgurr Alasdair and inside the colours are Milovaig storm and Neist Point.

🏔️ Need some inspiration for the weekend? Try out #SgurrAlasdair! ⠀ ⠀ Despite a relatively short up-and-down time (5-6hrs), Sgurr Alasdair is the highest peak on Skye - and indeed, the highest UK island summit. ⠀ ⠀ The tiny summit is an amazing viewpoint but reaching it involves an arduous slog up scree - make sure you have your Weetabix!⠀ ⠀ 📞 0141 221 6897⠀ 📧 info @ridgestonephysical.co.uk⠀⠀ ⠀ #fromdeepseadivingtoskydiving #peoplemakeglasgow #glasgow #massagetherapy #massage #sportstherapy #sportstherapist #pain #stiff #injured #injury #munro #munrobagging #mountaineer #mountaineering #mountains #hillwalking #extremesports #thegreatoutdoors #outdoors #rockclimbing #rockclimber #bouldering #kiltedtherapist

‘For the quintessential Cuillin scramble is right on that fine and uniquely enjoyable borderline between hard scrambling and roped rock climbing, demanding all the concentration and commitment of the latter while retaining the freedom of movement of the former. The ability to move freely through vertiginous space without the encumbrance of ropes. -Gordan Stainforth That sums up the Cuillin to me, it’s an awesome place that I have found so easy to become fascinated with. #cuillin #skye #scotlandsbeauty #blackcuillin #cuillinridge #munrobagging #scrabbling #hartsledge #anstacdirect #inpin #kingschimney #sgurralasdair #sgurrmhicchoinnich #sgurrthearlaich #rottengully #coirelagan

Sgurr Alasdair, the best mountain I have ever climbed in Scotland. I didn’t even care that the day we climbed it a few days before I took this photo that it was socked in with cloud but so glad I could look back on it from Sgurr Dearg where this was taken.
