Bruach na Frithe
Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation
Bruach na Frithe is one of the most straightforward of the Cuillin Munros, and often the first to be climbed. It is hidden from Sligachan by Sgurr a Bhasteir but has a pointed summit though with fewer spectacular crags than its neighbours. It is a superb viewpoint for the main Ridge.
Region: Isle of Skye
Altitude: 958 metres
Detailed route description and map
Other routes and challenges
The above description covers both the ordinary route by Fionn Choire and the scramble up the northwest ridge. The main Cuillin Ridge stretching to the south soon involves unavoidable rock-climbing.
It is possible to extend the route to include Am Basteir, using a scree path from beyond the Sgurr a' Fhionn Choire, keeping to the left below the imposing Tooth and the mountain itself to reach the Bealach a' Bhasteir - from there, follow the Am Basteir route.
