Thanks to foinaven for adding this peak.
Sgurr alasdair is the highest summit in the Cuillin Hills. The traverse of the entire ridge from Garbh Bheinn to Sgurr Nan Gillean is a serious undertaking. Much serious scrambling and rock climbing is involved. The range contains all the hardest summits in the British Isles. Views into the huge valley of Coruisk are amazing while the drops and exposure felt while on the ridge arêtes are awesome. Time for total traverse is typically 12-14 hours. Sgurr Alasdair can also be climbed directly from Coire Lagan via the Great Stone Chute.
