I’m adding to these over time , in more detail if of interest,  but good descriptions are also found in the excellent ‘walkhighlands’ website. I’ve rated them *** to ***** stars.

Camasunary Bay from Kilmarie ***** An hour to an ethereal bay with the Gothic Black Cuillin ahead and above. My number one walk on Skye.


Old Man of Storr ***** A 40 minute slog up to the Pinnacle itself with a chance to wander myriad little tracks and explore this unearthly landscape.

Secret Lochan or Meall na Suiramach. ***** Superb walking whichever track you choose. Other-worldly landscapes.




Fairy Pools **** It’s getting awful busy but to me, the thing is Glen Brittle itself and walking into a Black Cuillin corrie. The Pools are small and turquoise, very beautiful.



Neist Point **** A shortish downhill stroll on a concrete path to the Lighthouse.



Ben Tianavaig ***** A boggy moorland slog at first then a nice springy ridge walk with stunning panoramas all around. The hill’s golden eagle has made a close up appearance, checking us out,  each time we’ve walked here.
