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 extremely rocky and rough terrain. Navigation is very difficult in mist, especially as compasses do not function correctly on the ridge.
Some parts pathless, with much rocky ground and scree slopes. Any real scrambling can be avoided.
Buses from Portree, Broadford and Kyleakin - get off at Sligachan Hotel.
Lay-by near Sligachan on the Dunvegan road.
