South Skye.
Difficulty; Easy. - Duration; 2 Hour. O.S. 47

I hereby make a reference to a part of Skye which was recommended to me, that being the south of the island and I’m grateful that I took up the chance to spend a few hours here. An older couple told me of their day out, travelling around Southern Skye and of the great scenery they had come across from their vehicle and of the beauties which are probably missed in the walkers exuberance to see the sights of mid and north Skye. .

Take a left on the A851, shortly after the Skye Bridge, then a right after Isleornsay at a road signposted Ord. All you have to do is follow the road in a loop the loop fashion and you end up back on the A851.

In between are some glorious vistas, including The Black Cuillins from Ord, Rum and Eigg from Tarskavaig, The Sound of Sleat and Beinn Sgrithaill on the other side of Sleat on the mainland. This, as an extra on my Kintail walks, was a drive that I was glad I had added, at the end of my foray. Superb and not to be missed. I didn’t do any actual walking here but the land is rather low lying, so I’m sure there are plenty to be had

We hope you enjoyed this South Skye Hillwalking Experience
