Details for: The Cuillin

The Cuillin are a range of rocky mountains mainly composed of basalt and gabbro, the latter being a very rough rock which makes for superb grip for mountaineers.

The scrambler can access most of the individual peaks by their easiest routes. Only the Inaccessible Pinnacle is a graded rock climb (moderate) by its simplest line but several of the other summits require rock climbing skills.

There is no source of water on the ridge, meaning all water has to be carried.
