Isle of Skye challenge

The dramatic volcanic landscapes of the Isle of Skye are steeped in myth and adventure. With ridgelines prized by mountaineering heroes, Skye’s awe-inspiring summits, coastline and incredible rock formations are on the bucket list of all true adventurers.

In one of the last remaining outposts of genuine wilderness in the UK, this challenge will see you undertake four days of trekking as you discover hidden lochs, ascend the UK’s most challenging mountain range – the Black Cuillin – and trek through remote glens to unlock spectacular secret corners of the captivating ‘Misty Isle’.
