Thoroughly enjoyed this walk with our own detour at the start. From the turning area, there is a farm track heading off on the right for the initial ascent to the top of Eagles Rock. After a few hundred metres where the farm track takes a sharp right turn, you can continue a direct line to the top of Eagles Rock following a sheep track through the heather. There are some minor boggy sections but nothing that a decent pair of outdoor shoes couldn’t cope with. From the top are some brilliant views of the island and unmistakable peaks on the Isle of Eigg and Mull.

From the top, it is easiest to retrace your steps back to the start or opt for the more strenuous trek round the rugged inlets. Back at the start, continue with the remainder of the route as described in the original.
The beaches are very nice and so easy to spend time just sitting, but there are better to be found on the other routes listed.
