Detailed route description and map

Five Sisters of Kintail traverse

Other routes and challenges

Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe is almost invariably climbed along the Five Sisters ridge - over Sgurr nan Spainteach from Beinn na Lapain to the east, or via Sgurr na Carnach to the north.

The traverse of the Five Sisters is a long and demanding walk in its own right; the super-fit may attempt to extend it by also including the three further Munros of the Brothers ridge, and perhaps even Ciste Dhubh as well.
