A good challenging hike with fantastic views going as far as Ben Nevis. The decent is tough on the knees for elderly hikers. Trekking poles help a lot.

A great hike. at top of the mountain we had all cloud with little visibility and string wind and no trail marks, it was very easy to get lost without alltrails app.

Nette kurze Wanderung gute Aussicht auf die komplette Bucht von oben.

Nice lure fishing off rocks. Walk good too but go early to get parking and avoid the people

My eyes ache more than my legs. The scenery is other-worldly. The Scots culture is to walk wherever you want so there is minimal trail management. Also be prepared for potential of howling winds. All that notwithstanding, if you are on Skye and don’t do this hike, you will regret it.

This is a good family friendly trail with various activities scattered around the woods - I especially liked the ‘tunnel slides’ built into the hillside. It makes a gentle walk for anyone wanting to enjoy the forest and has a few more open views at the higher points. The track is easy to follow and well signposted, though the 2nd sign for the ‘shortcut via the pond’ looked as though it would be longer than continuing past it! The pond makes an attractive detour and has a good bench - there are plenty of other benches and picnic tables along the way. The big attraction for many people is the viewpoint overlooking the Falls of Shin waterfall. The waterfall alone would be impressive but the wow factor is watching salmon leap the falls as they make their way upstream. Some power through in one go, others fall back and keep trying. It’s worth visiting for the Falls alone. There is a good restaurant and children’s play area too. All in all a good outing.

The hike was hard but faisible on the first part to the sommit, even so it was very cloudy. After passing the top, it was hard to find our way without any indications and visibility. At some point it was hazardous and only on way with abseiling possibility only. Without any gear we bailed on our loop tour. Hopefully with a good weather it will be more suitable to find the path.

A must-do hike if you’re in the area, path can be easily lost in cloud but views spectacular when the weather is clear. Took the dog up no problem, but a leash advisable on the top due to the sheer drop.

Awesome view the whole hike. Keep an eye on your map while hiking, the trail is hard/impossible to see sometimes. Involves light climbing. At the end the trail actually is a small and steep rocky waterfall that has to be climbed down. Get there early as it gets heavily crowded. We arrived at 7:30 and the car park (which is really small) was already full but the trail not crowded at all. At around 11:30 the whole street was full of parking cars with tourists everywhere.

4.5/5. the trail and views are absolutely stunning in the summer with lots of fast flowing rivers and plwnty of wildflowers popping up. The streams higher up near the base of the mountain are safe to drink! be warned that the trailhead is not marked but is right across from the ranger station. once you reach the base of the mountain, look to your left for a switch back rocky trail that should allow you to ascend. then you have aboit a 1000m scramble up some boulders and slick rock with parches of plants. occasionally you will see mountain goats/sheep so watch out for their droppings. do not attempt to summit in the rain as the rocks become very slick, especially those with moss. summitting the Basteir can be very tricky so only attempt if youre an experienced climber! very enjoyable hike and couples well with the circle trail over by the fairy pools. happy hiking!
