Sgùrr 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.
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.
None to start.
Parking at Glen Brittle above the beach.
