Best experience on Skye
Aug 2020
The most amazing walk and beach away from the tourist traps of the big sights. This was my absolute favourite day of our whole trip. It seems off the beaten track so was very quiet. It is a difficulk hike though so you would need a level of fitness as good walking boots.

Stunning walk to the bay from the track starting just outside Kilmarie
Jul 2020
This is a long walk (9.2km's return) but it's not very steep and should be doable for just about everyone. The only challenge may be the sections of the trail with large loose rocks that require a little more concentration on foot placement.

There's a car park for about ten cars just outside the small village of Kilmarie that will tip you off to the start of the trail and, at a regular pace, it will be around an hour before you get your first sight of Camasunary Bay. The day we visited it was very windy and a bit cloudy, but there were also incredible bursts of sunshine that lit up the whole bay. The views were phenominal, as not only is the bay gorgeous, but there's also the Cuillin mountains surrounding it too, with the Munro Bla Bheinn coming into view just before you get your first glimpse of the bay.

The beach itself when you reach it is a bit bleak and littered with all that has washed up from the sea, but it still has a raw and rough beauty to it. There's a bothy on the shoreline too, so you could potentially stay the night too.

The Bad Step is scary but the reward is worth it
Oct 2019
If you hike out to the Camasunary Bay, be prepared for the Bad Step. It truly is exceptionally difficult for anybody who has not done a little rock climbing using cracks. Make sure you read the detailed instructions because it is almost impossible if you don't follow them. The round trip hike, even before the Step is probably 5-6 hours, but it is worthwhile even if you don't do the Step (the last quarter mile). It is maybe the wildest, unused part of Scotland. Be prepared for a lot of wet trails. At one point you cross a small river where even at low tide it is tough to keep your feet dry. No matter what else I have said, getting to the end is such a reward, and such a sense of accomplishment, it is well worth the time.

Beautiful scenery
Sep 2019
We pulled over in one of the small turnouts for some quick photos of the breathtaking scenery. Very pretty drive and off the main tourist road. Very peaceful and quiet.

Stunning scenery every step of the way
Sep 2019
What a wonderful walk to a beautiful bay .

Yes it does take a bit of effort as you have a moderate climb to get there followed by a moderate downhill section all to be repeated on the way back but it is a very rewarding experience

The backdrop of the magnificent Cullins to your right and then breathtaking views out to sea are quite literally breathtaking

The bay itself is lovely and sadly does suffer from debris being brought in by the currents but it is beautiful nonetheless

So get yourself wrapped up with layers your can adjust and enjoy this lovely walk

Beautiful and isolated
May 2019
This wonderful spot is only accessible by foot or by boat, and as a result it is beautifully quiet. It is also directly below what has to be one of the finest viewpoints in these Isles - Sgurr na Stri.

Walk from Elgol to Camasunary Bay
Aug 2018 • Couples
We were recommended to walk from Elgol to Camasunary Bay and got tips of where exactly the hike started from a local. Even though warned by the local, we were surprised by how narrow the trail got with serious steep cliffs on one side and it was slick with mud. Not for the faint of heart, but an absolutely lovely hike with great views of the Cuillins.

Walk from Elgol to Camasunary Bay
Jun 2018 • Solo
The drive down to Elgol is great. This is a decent walk and not difficult. It takes about 2 to 3 hours and I did not meet anyone along the way. The path is mainly by the cliff ledge and gives great views of the coast and mountains. The bay is beautiful and relaxing.
