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.
Please note that hillwalking in winter conditions - which is whenever there is snow lying - requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly, and to judge which routes are safe for the conditions and your party in winter. Please see our Winter Essentials for details.
