Mountain guiding, rock climbing and guided walks
- Luib is a peaceful village 15 miles from the Skye bridge and just 7 miles north of Broadford. With a large open sea-shore and surrounded by mountains, it is a paradise for lovers of wilderness. Dolphins and otters, herons, sandpipers and red-breasted mergansers are all commonly spotted in the bay. Visitors can also collect cockles, mussels, and oysters at low tide. A working croft with horses, sheep, hens and ducks give the village a unique character. The gate at the bottom of the garden leads straight from the cottage garden through common grazing to give direct access to the shore.
- Immediately behind the cottage lies Glas Bheinn (Glas Vayn, Grey Mountain). At 570m high this wonderful view point can be reached in less than 2 hours. Shorter excursions from the cottage are all guaranteed to give wonderful vistas across hills and sea.
The owners of Glas Bheinn Cottage run Skye Guides, specialising in guiding in the world famous Black Cuillin mountains. Any amount of advice on routes, conditions, equipment and suitability is always freely available. In addition to mountaineering and climbing we also provide guiding for walkers with less serious ambitions. We regularly provide guiding for families with a mixture of exciting adventures for children in beautiful scenery very popular. Bespoke itineraries are available for long or short walks to less publicised beauty spots for photography and natural history.
