Length: 2.8 mi • Est. 1 h 44 m
Arguably the most popular hike on the island.The "Old Man" himself is the iconic rock jutting into the air, visible from miles away. Many films have featured this landscape as their backdrop, which is well-deserved as it is awe-inspiring to see in person. There are fierce winds at the top, so be prepared. Show more

Magical pools and waterfalls around every corner. Come with an adventurous spirit and explore the variety of things to see. Expect crowds, as this is a popular hike. The trail isn’t heavily marked but you’ll know where it is due it’s heavy use. There will be some stones you have to jump across to get into the main sections. You can swim in the pools, but they are cold. There is a parking fee of two pounds.Show more

A great walk to get you into the Cuillin scenery without the need for any scrambling or other difficulties. The first section follows a beautiful crystal clear stream full of lovely pools and waterfalls - well worth a shorter walk in itself. Clear undulating path with no difficulties and only short boggy sections. Ignore an early fork to the left and follow the path as it runs next to the stream. On a hot day, enjoy swimming in the beautiful fairy pools.Show more

Length: 5.3 mi • Est. 4 h 8 m
Bla Bheinn is one of the most magnificent mountains in Britain; a great isolated citadel of rock with fabulous views and all the character of the main Cuillin Ridge. Its ascent is very rocky. While extremely difficult, the views and terrain are more than worth the effort. The first part of the hike follows a gentle hill along a river that features beautiful views and couple small waterfalls on its own. Eventually as you climb, the trail breaks off and splits into multiple paths that you can follow to the top. Hang to the right here in order to get the most direct route to the top. It gets very steep here, and parts require scrambling up some rock faces. It is also very easy to lose the trail you’re on in this section. It requires good concentration and balance through here, and is a challenge both while climbing and descending. It’s definitely not a beginner trail, but if you can persevere to the top then the 360 degree views are so worth the effort.Show more
