Beinn Alligin means a Mountain of Beauty in Gaelic language and I must agree with that. It consists of two tops - Munros (the mountains of more than 3000 feet in height).

Usually the best time to visit Scotland is from mid April till the end of May but you can be lucky and experience good weather all year round. April is great with the patches of snow, brown grass and blue sky contrast whereas in August you can experience nice green/pink colors. Can be crowded during weekends with good weather but it is still memorable experience.

Sgùrr na Banachdaich is one of the Cuillin Munros, the mountains above 3000 feet. It is considered one of the easiest mountains in the Cuillin ridge to climb yet not to be underestimated.

The best time to climb the hills on the Isle of Skye is usually from mid April till end of May but you can experience a day with decent weather throughout the whole year. My experience is to start after noon since the evenings are usually more calm on Skye.

PLEASE NOTE that climbing this mountain can be very dangerous. It is not a walk and demands scrambling.

Isle of Skye, also known as "Misty Isle", has only few really good days for climbing the higher mountains. The best time is usually from mid April to the end of May, but you can be lucky and experience a great day throughout the whole year. From my experience, it is better to start after noon, since evenings are usually more calm on Skye. Check the forecast before you go! Note that climbing Sgurr Alasdair requires mountain experience. People who suffer from vertigo should not try this. Note that Cuillin ridge can be very dangerous place for people who underestimate it. Weather can change very quickly and navigation is very hard on the ridge. Use proper clothes, shoes and equipment when going to the ridge and be ready for every eventuality.

Ben Hope is the northernmost Munro. It is very remote mountain with excellent views. The path up the hill starts on the minor road between Hope and Altnaharra near the place called Muiseal.
