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.
Coire Lagan ***** 90 mins of moorland ascent to this wild and beautiful Black Cuillin lochan. The big stuff is all around.
Rubh an Dunan ****great coastal walk to an ancient Dun with evidence of a Viking boat channel.Wonderful coastal and mountain views.
Waternish Point **** It’s around 5 miles out to the Lighthouse on a spectacular headland.Great whale spotting area.
Rubha Hunish **** Beautiful gentle peninsula with a short dramatic cliff section if you want to go all the way out to the headland.Great Harris views.
Point of Sleat **** Three mile walk to Skye’s finest white beach.
Coral Beaches *** A nice easy walk of about 30 minutes to some soft golden sand beaches, a rarity on Skye.
Dunvegan Head **** Thousand foot cliffs at the end of this long walk.Great views to the Outer Hebrides.Golden eagle country.
Kilvaxter Headland *** A beautiful coastal and cliff walk with great Outer Hebrides views.
Oronsay Island Loop *** A shortish walk with minor ascent around this tiny tidal island.Great views all around.Do it with plenty time to spare though re the tide.
THE BIG STUFF – tougher days out!
Bruach na Frithe ***** The easiest Cuillin with a clear track to the ridge.
Sgurr na Stri ***** A big day out, 8 hours, hailed as the UK’s finest viewpoint.
Macleod’s Tables *** Bit boggy, great views if clear. Avoid if not.
Beinn Dearg Mor and Marsco, Red Cuillin**** Nice couple of hills to do if weather is up to them.Or just do the first one.The Black Cuillin all around.
