Rubha Reidh and Camas Mor, Melvaig

An easy walk at first along the coastal road, with good views to Skye, leading to Rubha Reidh lighthouse. Continuing around the coast on narrow cliff paths is much tougher but gives views of amazing natural arches and the beach at Camus Mor. The route then climbs over heather moorland and bog to the mast at Maol Breac before returning to the coast road. An easier option would be to walk to the lighthouse and back, perhaps exploring a little further along the coast as well.

Terrain

Minor road, very rough and exposed cliff path, rough, pathless moorland section with peat bog.
