Rugged Ridges to Sgurr na Ciche

This epic mountain walk takes in three remote and exceptionally rugged Munros. The effort is well repaid as the scenery is magnificent, and Sgurr na Ciche itself is one of the most shapely peaks in all Scotland.

Terrain

Extremely boggy terrain lower down and very complex rocky terrain on the higher ridges makes this a long and exhausting outing. Not a route to be underestimated.

Distance

26 kilometres

Time

10 - 12 hours

We want you to keep safe in the outdoors, and the best way to do that is be prepared for your chosen activity. Out top three questions are:

Do you know your route?
Choose a route that is appropriate to you or all of your group's experience, taking into account their fitness, navigation skills, mountain experience and the weather conditions. Remember to consider turning back if someone in your group is tiring or getting cold; retreat is not defeat, it is a safe mountain experience. 

Always carry a map and compass, and know how to use them.
