Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgurr a'Mhadaidh has four summits on one of the trickier sections of the Cuillin Ridge - the highest one, which is the only Munro, is the only one that can be ascended without rock-climbing. The usual ascent is via An Dorus but there is an easier option which leaves the gully before reaching the bealach.

Other routes and challenges

Alternative routes are much tougher than that given above; the main ridge involves rock-climbing over the remaining Tops of Sgurr a' Mhadaidh, whereas the ridge from Sgurr Thuilm involves very hard scrambling, beyond what would be featured on Walkhighlands.
