The Black Cuillin range is the most complex and technical mountain environment in the British Isles, with a history of guiding dating back to the early 1800s. Jagged rocky ridges dropping straight into the beautiful Hebridean Sea provide the setting for a unique mountain experience.

The Isle of Skye is famous for having some of the most beautiful, dramatic and diverse scenery in the world. Guiding  is available for photographers, film-makers, naturalists or anyone else visiting this magical island. We look forward to showing you our wonderful island and the best mountains in Britain.
