Out-and-back walk to Harris from Kinloch

This long walk follows an excellent track right through the wild and bleak heart of Rum to reach beautiful Harris and its mausoleum on the west coast. There are excellent views of the Cuillin along the way, but the long distance means this walk would perhaps be better enjoyed on a mountain bike.


Excellent tracks throughout; a mountain bike would be very useful.
