Sgurr a Mhadaidh Ruadh from Glenhinnisdal
A walk up a peaceful glen gives access to a dramatic section of the Trotternish Ridge.
Pathless but fairly good going on turf throughout. Very steep grass in places.
No public transport to start of walk. Bus number 57 from Portree passes the foot of Glenhinnsdal 4 times a day; this 4km from start of walk.
