About Black Cuillin, Isle Of Skye

Located on the Isle of Skye, this rocky mountain is also known as the Black Cuillin with its highest point as Sgurr Alasdair at 3,255 ft (992 m). If you view the mountain from anywhere in Isle of Skye, it looks beautiful with its sharp peaks, which rise up from the flatness of the surrounding terrain. Further, they are considered to be most spectacular and challenging mountains in Britain. In order to reach the summit, you require scrambling or even rock-climbing. But, there are also several shorter walks that enable less experienced walkers. During your hike, you shall also come across Coire Lagan which is one of the most impressive corries in the Cuillin, a tiny loch ringed by gigantic rock peaks - an unforgettable place to visit.
