Sgurr Alasdair

Height:992 m
3255 ft
Sgurr Alasdair is the highest Munro on Skye, and lies on the main Cuillin ridge. Like all the Skye Munros, there is some scrambling invovled, but there are no sustained difficult sections. Less confident scramblers will prefer the security offered by a rope.
There are sections on the main Cuillin ridge where the compass becomes unreliable due to local variations in the magnetic field; take care with your map reading.
