This was a lovely walk with fabulous views but be warned after rain sturdy footwear is required. We were suitably attired but you do have to pick your way through a well trodden path. But the views are well worth that and it’s not a...More

The first day I went I hiked the bluffs above; the next day I hiked down to the lower level. It's a beautiful spot up or down. On a day where you'll see hundreds of vehicles parked at the Old Man of Storr, you may...More

After setting out from the Car Park on this walk, we got slightly lost on the directions but it was a stunningly beautiful walk; the views were sublime and well worth wading through the Bog and Marsh (wear wellies or waterproof shoes!!) to reach the...More

This is the northernmost point of the Isle of Skye. It is a wild area, with fantastic views all around the point. There is a small car park area near the road, and from there an easy hiking trail to the end of the cliffs....More

A great exhilarating walk along the cliffs to a fabulous viewpoint. You can climb down the cliffs if you are careful and once down, you can walk around surrounded by wildlife. We weren't lucky enough to see whales, but there were plenty of seals and...More

Not the longest walk you'll do on Skye, but one of the most interesting. And if you love seabirds then this is most certainly for you. The walk in alternates between nice, solid rock, and bog, above the abandoned/cleared village of Erisco, with views over...More

It is a good walk on a sunny day, a bit windy but amazing views. If you are lucky you will see a pair of sea eagles that frequent the area. Its not for the faint hearted to go down to it but wonderful if...More
