Sgurr Alasdair is the highest peak on Skye - and indeed, the highest UK island summit. The tiny summit is an amazing viewpoint but reaching it involves an arduous slog up scree.

Terrain

The Great Stone Chute is an extremely steep and loose scree chute whose ascent requires much effort and care. The final climb to the summit is a straightforward scramble.

Public Transport

None to start. Traveline Scotland.

Start

Parking at Glen Brittle above the beach. Map and directions.
