The mountains and hills of Skye are possibly even more beautiful in winter. The Cuillin becomes a true Alpine environment. Look onto wild seas from snow covered ridges, learn new skills or get stuck into some outstanding winter climbing and mountaineering with Skye Adventure.

You can choose from Winter hill walking in the Red Cuillin to day-long introductory courses Winter climbing in the Cuillin. If you have more experience, then set yourself a Winter ridge or climbing challenge! As well as Skye we operate in Glen Shiel, Torridon and even further afield on the mainland. Matt is one of the only fully qualified winter Mountaineering and climbing instructors based in Skye.
