Skye Winter

Experience the Magic of Skye this winter

Skye’s spectacular landscape is even more dramatic in winter. Light effects change on the snow-clad jagged mountains and the Hebridean seas every minute. For walkers and climbers there is the most varied selection of winter venues per square mile in Scotland. Click on the links below for details of the numerous activities we guide in winter on Skye.

Winter Traverse-

Known as the “Greatest Mountaineering Challenge in Britain” it requires perfect conditions so that teams can move at least as fast as in summer. We don’t offer the course but would be willing to upgrade a normal winter course to a Traverse if conditions were ideal. Notes for those keen to try themselves are on this Free Download
