Laig Bay and forest walk

Follow the road across Eigg to visit the fertile crofting area in the north. The walk then visits the beautiful beach at Laig Bay with its famous outlook to Rum before climbing up into the forest for the return to the pier along forestry paths and tracks.


Minor road, beach, and forest paths; the latter are very boggy.
