This spectacular coastal hike at the south west corner of North Harris must surely rank as one of the finest in Scotland. Flower filled meadows, turquoise seas, huge deserted beaches, wild mountain landscapes, dramatic off-shore islands and a good chance of spotting eagles - this is a great walk to do over and over again! The initial section can be a little awkward – a short but steep climb then an equally steep descent down a rocky and badly eroded path – but after this, the terrain becomes much easier. Navigation is fairly straightforward but basic map reading skills are essential as there is no obvious path at times.
