Sgurr Alasdair - DESCRIPTION

Sgurr Alasdair is the highest Munro on the Isle of Skye and one of the hardest to climb. This is due to the fact that to the everyday walker there is only really one access route, this climbs up the infamous “Great Stone Shoot” on the back headwall of Coire Lagan which bites into on the SW face of Sgurr Alasdair. This used to be completely covered in scree for the entire back headwall of the corrie and was an extremely tiring climb. You could however “Ski Scree” the way back down in minutes. Years of abuse from this skiing malarkey has meant only the largest boulders remain nearer to the rim of the corrie but it is still a very tiring climb. Following a visible path through the scree will take you onto a small col on the main Cuillin ridge east of the summit. You are not out of the woods yet however and require a tricky scramble to reach the pointed summit which stands slightly to the side of the main Cuillin ridge.

Sgurr Alasdair is connected in the north to Sgurr Mhic Choinnich and on the south to Sgurr Dubh Mor. Both of these traverses are far from easy and require the skills of a competent scrambler or climber hence why the stone shoot is the most common approach.

As can be expected from the highest Cuillin peak you achieve fantastic panoramic views in all directions particularly north where you get a superb view of the Inn Pinn (Sgurr Dearg) with its impressive sloping east face. The Cuillins and in particular Sgurr Alasdair is one of the greats of Scottish mountaineering so there should definitely be a great day out on the cards. Enjoy!
