About Sgurr a'Ghreadaidh

Sgurr a’Ghreadaidh has two summits, which are separated by the narrowest arête in the British Isles. The higher of the two has an elevation of 973 m (3,192 ft), making this Munro the highest point on the central part of the Black Cuillin ridge on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.

The entire ridge is primarily made up of gabbro, a tough igneous rock much prized by climbers for its good gripping potential. Sgurr a'Ghreadaidh is one of the tougher ascents on the Black Cuillin, involving a Grade 3 scramble up even the easiest route, which passes via the col of An Dorus (‘the Door’), most easily reached from a starting point at Glen Brittle.
