A reasonable climb but a bit of scrambling over rocks at the end where care must be taken if you have small children. The views are spectacular and the lochan at the top is a great place to have lunch and cool your weary feet. We were delighted to see an adder basking on the rocks on the way up. Take insect repellent as we were bitten by clegs as we climbed.

Free parking at Glen Brittle campsite.Clear path to follow. Steep and uneven underfoot so be prepared. Fabulous views overlooking the sea as you climb. Last part quite tricky but the reward is worth it. You can refresh your feet in the cool waters.

A fine upland walk to this corrie where you can stop by the lochan for a view over Loch Brittle towards the the isles of Soay, Rum Eigg, Muck & Canna one way or a close-up glimpse of the spire-like peaks towering above, including Sgurr Alasdair (the highest) & it's scree-gully (the great stone chute). Moderate fitness and stotu boots and sensible clothing needed & optimal weather recommendedeto ascend the 1000+ feet into the corrie.

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.
