Skye Basecamp is  run by Skye Guides, the island’s biggest mountain guiding company. We offer a range of services similar to mountain guiding bureaux in the Alps. The office is run from Basecamp and guides are always around for free advice on current conditions and route details. It is best to book in advance but outings can be arranged at short notice. This link provides some answers to frequently asked questions- FAQ

The Skye Cuillin is the only truly alpine environment in Britain and has been a mecca for climbers and walkers for over 150 years. There are also superb climbs right around the 1000 mile coast-line.
