Skye Trail

<<<<<                              >>>>>

Description:

A 7-stage walk with an overall difficulty grading of 4 (Hard!). The Skye Trail includes pathless sections calling for more careful navigation!! There may be scree and minor scrambling. Do take care! This stunning trail with a total length of 128 km includes the finest mountain and coastal scenery like the Trotternish Ridge and the jagged Cuillin Hills.

Coastal cliffs, steep trails and the haunting ruins of deserted villages destroyed in the infamous Highland Clearances.......you will see them all!
