This fantastic coastal walk to the impressive sea arches at Carsaig is a tough route over very rocky ground and with some narrow sections of landslip-prone path most of which can be avoided by following the rocky shore. Extreme care must be taken if visiting the second arch.
Very rocky coastal path, the optional climb to reach the second arch is very exposed and needs extreme care.
None to start.
