It's about a 2 mile walk up from the Glenbrittle campsite along a stony path with a bit of scrambling required at one point but you are rewarded by fine views both out to sea and of the surrounding Cuillins. We then spent an hour eating lunch and watching people scramble up the scree slopes.

Wear good strong footwear and pack your waterproofs just in case and you will not be disappointed.

This is not a difficult walk, but you will need to check the weather, wear decent footwear and take some wet weather gear in case it pours down (this is Skye). On a clear day you will be rewarded with fantastic views across to the Outer Hebrides island chain with Canna and Rum, but the main reason to clamber up here is the magnificent Black Cuillins which surround you and the loch high in the mountains.

Put this on your bucket list.

Having 1st visited Glenbrittle some 33 years ago, I could never go to Skye, & not climb up to Corie Lagan. Simply breathtaking views (on a good day).
After a breif rest, I'd recommed the final Scramble up t the top of Scurr Alisdair

Bit of a hard trek to get here (you really need good walking boots) but its stunning when you do arrive, with the Cuillin Ridge above.

I have done this walk many times over and it never fails to take my breath away. When the weather is beautiful the views are breath-taking. By the lochen itself is peaceful with in the sheer grandeur of the Coullins. It can make you forget where you are.

This walk is not difficult. There is a little bit of scrambling at the top but nothing overly extreme.

I would advise only do this walk if the weather is nice, it is very frustrating walkiong the 3 hours to see absolutely nothing in front of you. That can even include the water at the top! The bleakness can be depressing when the weather is less than ideal.

You will never struggle for space in the car park. The one nice thing is that if you get there and the weather starts to turn. Their is a fabulous walk around the bay (quite long) but very very pleasant.
