Bruach na Frithe
Bruach na Frithe is one of the easiest of the Cuillin summits to reach as well as one of the finest viewpoints, but the walk still crosses much rough and rocky ground; navigation would be difficult in mist.
Pathless in places, much rocky ground and scree slopes. Scrambling can be avoided.
Buses from Portree, Broadford and Kyleakin - get off at Sligachan Hotel.
