Description
Waypoints (2)

Rocky pinnacles, exposed traverses, steep cliff faces and raw, otherworldly landscapes. If you choose one hike in Isle of Skye, this is the one. Moderate hike but not too difficult. Just have good shoes and make sure to respect the trail and walk safely.

Beaucoup de monde au parking qui est en plus payant ! Nous avons donc fait un sentier alternatif partant d'un autre point et rejoignant le sentier principal. Beaucoup plus agréable !

Découverte de très beaux paysages. Le sentier est boueux dans la descente prévoir de bonnes chaussures. Si vous avez le vertige ça peut être délicat par endroit, le plus simple est de le faire dans les sens inverse des aiguilles d’une montre.

Excelente! Unas visitas hermosas. Traer bota de montaña, hay mucho lodo y los bastones no son necesarios pero se agradecen bastante.

Amazing trail with spectacular views the whole way along. We opted to add on the prison and the table which were both incredible and well worth the effort, although there was a wee bit of scrambling on both of them. We went anti clockwise round and the trail was mostly in good condition apart from the last mile or so which got quite boggy. Do enjoy, this is not a trail to be missed

Quite muddy but quite fun. Some very beautiful views of the sea, the islands on a clear day, and the amazing cliffs and rock formations.

Fantastic! I loved that the trail was varied with just the right amount of ascent/descent. I did it counter clockwise which seems the right route as you get the stellar pinnacle views at the front end. I also had great weather so the views out to sea were amazing. The descent on the return is a muddy fun mess. Forget saving your boots & just go with the goo. Enjoy!

Completed this hike today and it was unlike anything I’ve ever seen despite the dense fog. I will echo other hikers and say you should complete this going counter clockwise. We completed the whole loop today and the last/back half is pretty unenjoyable. The trail is totally washed out and virtually unidentifiable. We had to spend most our time looking at the AllTrails app to make sure we were going the right way instead of enjoying the scenery. It was also a LOT more muddy and slippery with a lot of loose rocks and scree So while the hike is stunning and breathtaking, I think it’s only necessary to complete the first half and then turn around. PS you do have to pay to park at the trailhead and they have a kiosk that takes cards. Also treat yourself to a hot chocolate from the snack cart that parks at the trailhead (The Tea Pot) - it’s delicious!

Gorgeous hike. Not too strenuous but SUPER muddy. You really must have waterproof shoes. I would recommend going clockwise... the first main slope is totally washed out and muddy -much easier to go up rather than down.
