Owner description: Loch Coruisk (Gaelic Coire Uisg/the 'Cauldron of Waters') is an inland fresh-water loch lying at the foot of the Black Cuillin on the Isle of Skye. Loch Coruisk is reputed to be the home of a water horse. After staying at Dunvegan Castle, Sir Walter Scott visited the Cuillin and Loch Coruisk in 1814 and described it thus: 'Rarely human eye has known A scene so stern as that dread lake, With its dark ledge of barren stone...' The loch is accessible by boat from Elgol or on foot from Sligachan (approximately 7-8 miles distance). It is also possible to walk from Elgol, but one section of the path known as the 'Bad Step' presents some potential difficulties for the nervous or inexperienced walker. The northern end of the loch is ringed by the Black Cuillin, often wreathed in cloud. From the southern end the Scavaig River, only a few hundred yards long, discharges into a sea loch, Loch Scavaig. The loch is nearly two miles long, but only about 400 yards wide.

8 a.m. April 27.The Black Cuillen ringed in cloud. Like a land of dragons and druids. Mists and fire. I know it sounds wanky but this place brings it out of you. Chilled out and blissful, the sun hiding up there, somewhere. Out there with work and the boss. Far away a way.

Me and my 7 year old daughter visited here via a boat trip from Elgol if you get the chance you must visit here. We had a glorious sunny day and the loch surrounded by high snow capped mountains created a stunning vista.

Spectacular loch in the heart of the cuillin. Walk or take the misty isle boat or one of each. Be prepared with sturdy foot wear and waterproofs.

We have been to Skye 4 times and this is a very beautiful rugged spot. The Cullins are always depending on the light and sky. It is a place where you feel you are alone surrounded by beauty. No matter the weather, the Loch is spectacular. We have seen it in rain, sun, and cloud.
