Sgurr nan Gillean is a magnificent pyramidal shaped mountain in the Cuillin range on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Its height is 964 m (3,162 ft) and it has a prominence of around 204 m (669 ft), classifying it as one of eleven Munros in this range.
Even the easiest route involves scrambling and usually follows a path from Sligachan up into the Coire Rhiabhach (a corrie), where loose rock and scree are a challenge to those ascending. From there the narrow path to the summit is exposed and can be treacherous in wet or poor weather, while the summit itself is along a ridge, requiring further scrambling to the small platform for superb views down.
Ascents via the north ridge involve rock climbing and abseiling skills.
