The hike to Bla Bheinn is extraordinary! Exceptionally BEAUTIFUL, but also very difficult. The majority of the walk (especially the heavy passages) lead over loose rock. It is difficult to follow the trail in these phases. I have lost this several times. The arrival upstairs is breathtaking! I had a wonderful view. The descent was then difficult again. With breaks I needed for the ascent and descent totally about 4.5h. Not suitable for beginners, children and "lazy hikers who just want to see something"! It takes effort, concentration and stamina. Good shoes and good clothes (the wind is very strong at the top!). Have fun with this great hike & congratulations to those who bite to the end!

Bla Bheinn is hands down one of my all-time favourite hikes. It was my first Munroe, and did not disappoint! The views are spectacular and so unique from the Canadian alpine terrain that I'm used to. The hike starts out as an easy, beautiful walk up a lush green hill. The path follows closely by a running stream for a large part of the hike, and the path meets up with the stream just a few minutes beyond the trailhead. Shortly after the trail meets up with the stream at a higher elevation, the path will sort of disappear for a while. In order to find the most straight-forward trail to the summit, keep right. It will appear that there is a path straight ahead, but it's actually a large scree gully that leads to the smaller summit rather than the true summit. It is a way to get to the top, but it's a lot longer, less direct, and more exhausting. If you keep right, there will be a few well beaten trails that reach the summit, but they vary in difficulty. Don't be afraid to backtrack and explore around a bit in order to find the best trail for your abilities and the kind of climbing you like. Most of the paths are quite rocky at this point of the hike, but if you're at all used to pathfinding, you'll be fine. The view from the summit is insanely beautiful, with panoramic views of the ocean on one side and the Black Cuillins on the other. Plan to spend some time sitting at the summit with some jerky or chocolate. The entire hike took us about 7 hours, with a longer break at the summit and lots of photo stops. This hike is a must-do when visiting Skye!

Beautiful hike and certainly deserving of its status as the most iconic hike on Skye. The parking situation is a disaster though. The local council has started ticketing anyone who parks on the east side of the road. The only notice of this is a sign partially hidden in the bushes leaning against the fence by the gate at the start of the trail. Unless you're lucky enough to snag one of the few legal parking spots on the west side of the road, you're pretty much stuck paying the £30 parking ticket or else parking miles down the road. Too bad the council is more interested in collecting fines than building more parking to solve the problem.

Beautiful view! And a nice and very easy walk.

It's achievable but you have to consider the weather can get quite windy It's a great view from the top

Stunning relatively easy to follow trail. It gets a little tougher to keep on the trail near the top of the fairy pools. On a windy day the path along the mountain side was a little lary but still beautiful. My tracker clocked the route at 13km rather than 7.4 mind. So bare that in mind. Definitely worth the extra distance though!

Quite challenging especially last part just before you get to the lochan

Lovely day in the sun! Would recommend a dip if you’re brave enough

Lovely wander on a Wednesday afternoon. Bit gusty but the rain lighthouse provides nice shelter for a bite to eat. The views don’t get much better than this.

The hike itself is not great. Lots of cleared trees and tons of erosion due to people as well as sheep. The trail was muddy when we went. It’s good cardio going up and the views are beautiful, but the hike itself is not very enjoyable.

It has been a few years, but most the path up had been stripped of trees and clear cut. Looking back provided nice views, but the way up was dusty and dull. once you pass the clear cutting, its a lovely hike. Too bad so many trees were taken down.

Crowded. Some very nice pools and small falls. I would visit again.

Very nice walk and excellent site for photography Many people do not risk getting lost

I did this hike last August and was honestly pretty disappointed. There were some flowers, the waterfalls were nice and the pools were clear, but there were people EVERYWHERE, and the trail has been trampled to be much wider than intended, leaving the river banks very muddy as no grass has been able to grow. Very sad to see how the crowds are destroying this beautiful place. Parking was also a nightmare, cars were along each side of the road for about 2 km and on the edges of the road were mud and deep potholes. The photos you see are certainly enhanced- it was beautiful but not like the photos.

Incredible hike. Incredible views. Was our favorite hike on Skye by far, way ahead of Quiraing and Storr. If you catch good weather, plan an extra hour to eat lunch at the top.

Can be very busy but worth doing, especially after a period of heavy rain. We were there after a week of rain and the pools/waterfalls were awesome. There is a water crossing were the stepping stones will be underwater at times so be prepared for that.
