Not alot of parking but worth waiting and walking across to the point. Amazing views there and back. Well worth checking out Erisco ruins in the way.

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

We visited this northern tip of Skye after reading about the coastguard's hut, a bothy which walkers can stay in overnight, in The Guardian. The walk from the nearest car park is quite a distance but it is worth it for the stunning views from...More

Take a bulging pack pack with drinks and sarnies. You will want to take your time sitting in the old coastguard lookout, now called a bothie. The views are simply stunning. Sadly this was probably the last time my wife and I shall take the...More

Whichever way you approach, the end is memorable. The view down to Rubha Hunish is unforgettable. The scramble down isn't as steep as it looks from above and is well worth the effort. To see the bothy on the cliff edge is a pleasure that...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
