We took the plunge, and did the full ten mile walk, allowing ourselves plenty of time because we only tend to indulge in long hikes on holiday, and had never done a full 10 miles, so were a bit out of practice. You do need...More
Isle of Skye, Boreraig and Suisnish Walk
Booking unavailable on TripAdvisor
This is a beautiful hike, no doubt. I found parts of the path very rocky so I would recommend good, sturdy hiking shoes or boots and a hiking pole. All views were amazing and worth going to the end. It was well worth my time.
