This walk in the east of North Uist provides some of the most spectacular uninterrupted views, with lots of wildlife and a diverse terrain. Beginning 1 mile south of Lochmaddy on the road to Clachan, the path crosses the coastal plain to reach the foot of North Lee. It then rises up the south west slopes to 263m and then follows the ridge north at the top of North Lee - a good place to see eagles and providing spectacular views of Uist, Skye, Harris and Barra. On a clear day, you can see St Kilda to the west. The route then descends past the site of  a World War II plane crash and re-joins the path to take you back to the road.
