Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgùrr Dubh Mòr is a dramatic rock peak situated just off the main Cuillin Ridge and usually reached by baggers via tricky and hard to find scramble from the rest of the range. On the other side the Dubhs Ridge leads directly from Loch Coruisk to the summit - this is the longest rock-climb in Britain and a total classic for those with the skills.
